Monetary Sanctions in Juvenile Court – Recent Developments [01:04:33]

While regressive and discriminatory criminal justice fees have been described and critiqued in the adult system, the issue has received relatively little attention in the juvenile system. Nevertheless, the imposition of monetary sanctions is a regular feature of juvenile courts across the country. Such fees significantly undermine the juvenile system’s rehabilitative goals. Attorneys are uniquely situated to help clients and their families negotiate local fee schemes, and to push for policy reform in this frequently overlooked area.

Ahmed Lavalais, Clinical Teaching Fellow at UC Berkeley School of Law, covers:

  • Recent research findings on the harmful impacts of monetary sanctions;
  • Policy reform efforts aimed at eliminating monetary sanctions in juvenile courts;
  • Promising interventions to help identify and mitigate the impact of monetary sanctions imposed by juvenile courts; and
  • Resources available to attorneys representing young people and families facing imposition of monetary sanctions in juvenile court.
