Juvenile Competency Procedures

August 6, 2015


This is the 1st in a new series intended to support National Center for Juvenile Justice's Juvenile Justice Geography, Policy, Practice & Statistics website development effort. The first StateScan publication released for the project addresses state policy (as determined in juvenile justice statutes) governing determinations for a youth’s competency to stand trial in delinquency matters. This scan is the first time National Center for Juvenile Justice has conducted a comparative statute analysis on this topic.
