To the average person the terms conviction and adjudication are synonymous. Most people also believe that juvenile records just disappear when a youth turns 18 or 21. BOTH of these assumptions are Incorrect! The consequences of juvenile adjudication can prevent youth from reintegrating into society and stigmatize them at a critical time in their lives. Having a juvenile offense record can prevent youth from continuing their education, and obtaining housing and employment, which may lead to a cycle of poverty, homelessness, and crime. Learning objectives: (1) Understand the consequences of juvenile offense records including sex offender registration notifications; (2) Learn strategies to reduce the harm stemming from juvenile adjudications and records; and (3) Build a coalition of people who are interested in limiting electronic mass distribution of juvenile records.
