Action taken to examine juvenile crime in Kanasas

When your child is accused of a crime, you aren't sure what your next steps are. You ask yourself where you went wrong and what do you do now? Will he or she be charged in adult court or can they enter a rehabilitation center? While there are few guarantees, the state of Kansas is as concerned as you are.

The authorities of this state have put together a report that reviews all the findings for a survey that is totally unique that was conducted by the Center for Community Alternatives. They worked in conjunction with the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, or the AACRAO. It uses the criminal history screening in college admissions procedures.

The method used was a 59-question survey that was administered electronically in 2009. This utilized the 3,248 member-wide AACRAO membership. Can you imagine this many institutions being interested in helping your young child be safe in today's world? As a matter of fact, 273 member institutions participated deeply in this research.

Sixty-six percent of the colleges who responded provided criminal justice information, however, not every one of them considered it in their admission process. A huge minority of 38 percent of the schools who provided information reported that their college campuses are not less safe after allowing this questionnaire to be administered. This is a good thing, because it could cause an angry reaction from the people who answered.

Your kids are of utmost important to you. There has to be a way to protect them from being prosecuted in either adult or juvenile court. Enlisting the aid of a legal representative can make a world of difference to you and your child. They don't realize what they are doing and the ramifications that can come from one really bad decision. Maybe they are totally innocent and need to have a lawyer who will be in their corner and get their story told.
