Juvenile Delinquent as a Subject of Restorative Justice



This article discusses have often in trials and retrospective analysis of materials 80 criminal cases, which were considered a crime committed by minors, led to the conclusion about the need to change the existing criminal procedural practices in relation to adolescents and young adults. It was revealed that the subjects of law enforcement practice did not fully investigate the psychological specifics of the experience of guilt by a juvenile offender as a subject of restorative justice. As a result, the system of criminal punishment and psychological and pedagogical conditions for the implementation of the program for the correction of juvenile offenders were not effective, since they did not take into account the level of their personal and subjective maturity and the specifics of the individual experience of guilt.
