This chapter discusses what the public knows about the success of the criminal prosecution of youth in general, and of the Manhattan Youth Part practices in particular. It draws from annual quantitative reports on the case processing of Juvenile Offenders (JO) in New York City released by the Criminal Justice Agency (CJA). These reports provides an insight and measurement into the juvenile criminal justice practices exercised by each of the five boroughs of the city. The chapter also examines two reports released by the CJA in 2005 and 2007 which emphasize the rearrest rates for JOs in the city. It concludes with a glimpse of what the future might hold for the practice of prosecuting youths as adults, focusing on research in adolescent development, recent Supreme Court decisions, and studies of public attitudes regarding young offenders.
