Description

Juvenile delinquency is a negative and dangerous social phenomenon, which is manifested in various forms throughout the course of human history starting from the first socio-economic formations. The fight against juvenile delinquency cannot be conducted in the same way, and with the same means as the adult perpetrators of criminal offenses and types of offenses cannot be pronounced the same as in adults. The purpose of the juvenile punishment is to re-socialize, reintegrate, rehabilitate and prevent the commission of a criminal offense or committing another criminal offense by offering juveniles care, assistance and supervision. The punishment of imprisonment is held in open or closed institutions. The types of entities, the organization and the manner of serving the sentence are regulated by the LES (sanction enforcement law). The legal framework also includes international standards for conduct with convicted persons, whose statute has started with the minimum standard rules for imprisonment.
