Reform of Reformatories and Industrial Schools (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Reform of Reformatories and Industrial Schools The vast majority of these juveniles are admitted between the ages of twelve and sixteen, either with one previous conviction or without previous conviction. It would, however, be a great mistake to imagine that those sent without previous conviction are first offenders. They are really old offenders who have hitherto managed to evade the clutches of the law, or have been previously charged but, with a view to leniency, not convicted. The genuine first offenders among juveniles are rarely, except on very serious charges, sent to either reformatory or prison. The average sentence served before release on licence is nearly-three and a half years so that the average age on release would be nearly eighteen.
