Who Are Our Assaultive Juveniles? A Study of 100 Cases
Joe was caught in the act of armed robbery. Kevin, with friends, beat up a man and took his money. When Francis threw his teacher across the room, a knife in his pocket led to the charge of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon. John lost control and killed a peer who was “pushing him around.” Mike grabbed an old lady's handbag, she lost her balance and died as a result of her fall; he was found guilty of first degree murder. James threatened little girls that he would hurt them if they did not indulge in sex play with him.
