Researchers Lawrence Steinberg and Elizabeth Scott suggest that, in the absence of full brain development, particularly the deficits in executive function and impulse control, adolescents should not be treated as adults by the criminal justice system. While controversial, the question of adolescent culpability is one of importance to those interested in and planning to work with juveniles. What is your opinion about juvenile delinquents’ ability to be fairly tried given adolescents’ brain development?
