ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument for trying and sentencing violent juvenile offenders as adults. The author argues that punishing violent offenders as adults may act as a deterrent to other youthful offenders as well as preventing further violent acts. The rate of violent crime committed by juvenile offenders in Australia, the effectiveness of the Australian Children's Court in handling violent offenders, and rates of recidivism are discussed.
