Juvenile interrogation

  1. After reading the materials on juvenile interrogation, please answer the following questions:
    1} What are the implications of a youth “waiving Miranda?’ (not included)
    2) Should there be a difference in the way that the Miranda warning is delivered to juveniles vs. adults? Why or why not? If yes, how
    should it be different?
    3) If you were a psychologist evaluating whether a juvenile was competent to waive their Miranda rights, what would you be looking
    for? Remember, in the eyes of the law, the fact that a youth is a minor does NOT automatically mean that they are not competent to
    waive their rights…. (consider asking this more specifically, or asking what can be done to better protect kids)
