This presentation will attempt to define what and who are “juvenile sexual offenders”. We will discuss what happens to these sex offenders when they “age out” and are no longer monitored. We will look at some relevant cases regarding juvenile sexual offenders and recommend ways we can work together to keep our children and communities safe.
