    Ya I'm trying to prove a point on another forum and I'm trying to remember the name of a particular court case.

    I think it went to the supreme court. It involved Juvenile court. What happened was there was a kid who pranked called some neighbors. The judge sentenced him to juvy till he was 21. It went to the supreme court.

    I think they ruled something along these lines

    "Juveniles don't have the right to fair trials"

    or

    "Juveniles only have to be proven to be delinquent"



    It was a very important case in Juvenile law. I know that much

    Any help would be appreciated.
