American Indian/Alaska Native Youth & Status Offense Disparities: A Call For Tribal Initiatives, Coordination & Federal Funding

Author:Coalition for Juvenile Justice & Tribal Law and Policy Institute

  • Year of Publication:
  • 2015

Abstract:American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) young people+

are almost twice as likely to be petitioned to state court for skipping school, violating liquor laws, and engaging in other behaviors that are only illegal because of their age (often known as status offenses). Once involved with the state court system, they are less likely to be placed on probation and experience higher rates of detention and residential placements. This brief looks at the disparities faced in the state system by AI/AN youth who are charged with status offenses, the ability of both state and tribal systems to respond to status offenses, and federal funding levels to support efforts to better serve these youth.

Revisiting “What They Think”: Adolescent Drinking and the Importance of Peer Beliefs

Author:Daniel T. Ragan

  • Year of Publication:
  • 2014

Abstract:Underage drinking is more prevalent than other types of drug+

use among adolescents and is often the result of peer influence and beliefs. This study examines the ways in which peer beliefs about alcohol consumption, particularly moral approval and positive expectations, shape an individual’s behaviors and impact the development of alcohol use. The study analyzes four years of data on 11,000 students in Pennsylvania and Iowa communities as they progress from 6th to 9th grade. The author finds that adolescents tend to become friends with others who hold similar beliefs related to peer drinking, and alcohol use contributes to popularity among other teens. Additionally, adolescents whose friends approve of delinquent acts are more likely to hold the same beliefs and even engage in such acts, and those with friends who drink are more likely to associate alcohol with positive outcomes.
