Julie Henderson (SOCI/MSCJ) and Dr. McCafferty publish "Intake" in The Encyclopedia of Juvenile Delinquency and Justice

Julie Henderson (SOCI grad and current MSCJ student) and Dr. McCafferty published "Intake" in The Encyclopedia of Juvenile Delinquency and Justice.  The encyclopedia entry focused on the intake meeting between a juvenile, their parents/legal guardian, and a court official to review criminal complaints. This process typically marks the beginning of the juvenile justice system. The entry also focused on risk assessment and the possible outcomes from the intake meeting, such as formal and informal case dispositions.  For more information, please visit: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9781118524275.ejdj0132/abstract
