Do you think juvenile offenders are entitled to a trial by jury?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 21, 2008
“No, I really don’t think that would be a productive use of the judicial system’s resources.”
“I’m going to say no because of all the extra costs that would be involved in doing it. I think the state would be better off putting that money into education and prevention programs.”
“Oh absolutely, you can’t just have a kangaroo court. You can’t convict people without a fair trial.”
“Yes, I think they are entitled to the same legal process as an adult.”
