The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention has published "Highlights from Pathways to Desistance: a Longitudinal Study of Serious Adolescent Offenders." This fact sheet presents findings from a project that followed 1,354 serious juvenile offenders for 7 years after they had been adjudicated or convicted and examined the factors that caused these young offenders to continue, reduce, or stop offending. It describes how longer juvenile sentences, community-based supervision and aftercare, and substance abuse treatment may affect reoffending.
