From the Desk of the Chief Juvenile Court Judge: Children Are Different

August 2022 Bar Bulletin

“[O]ur legislature has shown a clear intent to create material distinctions between the criminal and juvenile justice systems to address the unique needs of juveniles, which includes responding to their unique capacity for reform and not imposing unduly or solely punitive consequences. . . . The juvenile justice system was created, in large part, to protect children from the kind of severe and often complicated punitive and collateral consequences that have been deemed appropriately borne only by mature, adult members of our society. See Monroe v. Soliz, 132 Wn.2d 414, 420-21, 939 P.2d 205 (1997).”
