Juvenile Justice
Here at Advocates for Abandoned Adolescents we do our absolute best to ensure that the voices of incarcerated youth and their families get allocated a responsible reform to America's Juvenile Justice. Our Truth about youth Campaign seeks to hear from youth that have been prosecuted upto the age of 18yrs as an adult, as well as their family and friends, to collect their stories in order to understand their experiences, perspectives and recomendations for change in the Adult criminal Justice System. Advocates for Abandoned Adolescents will use this information to identify patterns and trends that are worthy of further research that are specific to harmful effects on adolescents in the adult criminal justice system.

Amy Dusselier's curator insight, February 7, 3:05 PM

This article is relevant to the book because it describe what happens to people who break into house. It shows what could happen to Pia and Stefan, since Herr Duster caught them.

Angie Leek's comment, February 10, 1:04 AM
This is a great article that tells of the repercussions of breaking into someones house. Pia and Stephan decide to " break into Herr Duster's house while he's out" just so they can see if they can find evidence that links him to the kidnappings of the girls (Grant 253). Them being children they don't really consider the law side of things when choosing to do something. Going through with this plan could result in them being arrested " under suspicion of a breaking and entering" (The Daily Herald). Even if they did go in and find evidence they would probably still get in trouble for tampering with evidence and interfering in an investigation.
