Aside from that, courts do not typically have the resources to provide the intensity or breadth of services needed by youth and their families. Consequences of Increased Youth Crime Rates Increasingly, the courts are making a decision to handle cases informally, believing that accountability and rehabilitation can be achieved in some cases without the use of formal court intervention. Of course, this is not generally true for cases of violent crime in which not only are restitution and punishment demanded, but changes in the law have resulted in more juveniles being tried as adults.

In the most highly controlled field experiment of 400 youth matched on demographic, behavioral, and physical factors, exposing youth to the best social work interventions of the time resulted in negative results for the youth compared to the control group of youth who were left alone (McCord, 1992). The youth who were assigned to summer camps did poorer than the control group in the three decades that followed (McCord, 1997). More recent studies with adolescents assigned to groups indicate that they have more negative results in terms of tobacco use and teacher-reported delinquent behavior (Dishion & Andews, 1995; Dishion, Andrews, Kavanagh, & Soberman, 1996).

Between 1989 and 1998, courts with juvenile jurisdiction processed 44% more cases. The number of individual offense cases increased by 88% in this decade, property offense cases increased by 11%, drug law violation cases increased by 148%, and publicorder offense cases increased by 73% (Puzzanchera, Stanl, Finnegan, Snyder, Poole, & Tierney, 2002). In this same decade, juvenile courts handled 128% more simple assault cases, 100% more disorderly conduct cases, 102% more obstruction of justice cases, 61% more weapons offense cases, 36% more aggravated assault cases, and 29% more robbery cases.
