Uh this also doesn't work if their "representation" is actively working to help convict them.

Which is of course not possible because that would be terrible and morally less than good. Unless of course juvie proceedings were secret for some crazy reason, then it might be hard to fix...

I'm sure this all magically never happens.

..but Boomers are right about everything!

I mean aren't The Beatles the best band of all time, and isn't "Revolver" the best album ever made and makes Mozart's entire body of work look like a Creed/Nickelback mashup?

Also: how else are we going to continue to have "Made in America" stuff at "Made in China" wages, without a steady supply of prison labor?

In re Gault, the mentioned case that brought the Constitution to juvenile courts is quite farked up.

Gerald Gault was accused of making an obscene phone call by a neighbor. He was arrested without his parents being informed, held without notification of the charges, not allowed an attorney, and not allowed to confront his accuser. The witnesses weren't sworn in and there was no record taken.

He was then sentenced to six years in juvenile detention. If he was 18 when accused, the maximum would have been two months and a $50 fine.
