When an adult is charged with a crime, they have legal rights which must be protected. It may be even more important to protect the legal rights of a juvenile who is facing allegations of a criminal charge, as the child's future, opportunities, and ability to become a contributing member of society may be in jeopardy if found to be guilty.
Today's youth face a great deal of peer pressure in a culture of street credibility, and sometimes they find themselves in situations which put their good judgment to the test. Unfortunately, juveniles, in an effort to "fit in" make the wrong choice, end up in the wrong place, or are with the wrong people, at the wrong time.
Mr. Kaplow is an advocate who believes in the ability of children to learn from their mistakes, and should not have their path in life, and their future goals for success derailed due to a single error in judgment. Our youth should be given every reasonable opportunity to use their experiences to grow from, and to inspire others by their ability to take a bad situation, turn their life around, and achieve success.
