Royal Palm Beach man facing battery, child abuse charges

There is an ongoing struggle between the rights of parents to decide how to raise their children and the responsibility of the state to intervene for children's protection and well-being.

Florida Supreme Court to decide on juvenile sentencing

Right or wrong, juvenile charges in Florida can carry serious long-term consequences and penalties. When a minor is charged with a crime, there is a hearing held within 24 hours of the arrest to determine whether he or she will be tried as a juvenile or adult. In reaching its decision, the court considers the age of the defendant and the severity of the alleged crime. The juvenile justice system differs from the criminal justice system in that it is designed to rehabilitate young offenders and give them a fresh start.
