    They Broke the Law - You Be the Judge:
    True Cases of Teen Crime
    Teens often hear about other teens who get into trouble with the law. But they're seldom asked what they think should happen next and why. A unique introduction to the juvenile justice system, this book invites teens to preside over a variety of real-life cases. Readers meet Adam, who makes a threat at school; Erica, who assaults another student and uses marijuana; and more young people who commit crimes and are caught. Like a judge, readers learn each teen's background, the relevant facts, and the sentencing options available. After deciding on a sentence, readers find out what really happened-and where each offender is today. Along the way, readers learn Judge Jacobs's concerns about each case, reflect on probing questions, and discover that they can't jump to conclusions. Teens (and teachers) who want more can download the free role-playing ideas and scenarios related to the stories available in the Free Downloads tab below. Thought-provoking and eye-opening, this book is for all teens who want to know more about the juvenile justice system and the laws that pertain to them and their peers.
