Status offense issues

Description

A wide range of non-criminal behaviors by youth are grouped as status offenses. Status offenses include truancy, running away home, being beyond their parents' or guardians' ability to safely manage them, curfew violation, and underage consumption of alcohol or tobacco. Many agencies other than juvenile courts are involved in responding to status offenses, and states differ on the labels they create for these categories of youth and the behaviors included in each category.  Charting these various approaches across states along with data concerning the prevalence of status offenders can help advance the ongoing national discussion on the most appropriate ways to respond to youth whose behavior may violate societal boundaries or rules, rather than the criminal law.
