    printer friendly version

    Question: If a juvenile gets adjudicated for vandalizing a school and they go to jail for it can they go to jail for doing it again?

    Answer: Yes. In fact, it is more likely that a juvenile will be sentenced to jail for a second offense than a first offense. The judge will look at the juvenile's record and see the prior adjudication for vandalizing a school. The fact that the juvenile has done the same thing again means he will be considered a 'repeat offender.' In most cases, the judge will impose a harsher sentence for someone who commits the same crime again because the juvenile did not learn his lesson the first time.

    The question was can he go to jail for doing it again. Double jeopardy has nothing to do with it if he does it again. It is two seperate crimes.

    He can because if he went to jail for vandalism then got out and vandalized again then he can be convicted of vandalism again because it a completly different case but a similar offense. But say that hewas trialed for vandalism and the court sought him not 'guilty' then they can't go back and trail him again for that same exact case, then THAT would be double jepordy.

    Yes, in fact, you will probably get in more trouble than the last time you did it. Double Jeapordy only comes into play when it is the exact same crime. ex: Julia kills Bob Smith June 30, 93....let's say Bob faked his death and she kills him the 2nd time she can't be convicted again for killing Bob Smith. That may have been confusing....I hope the example may have explained it. Yes...there is a movie like that called, "Double Jeapordy."

    DOUBLE JEOPARDY - Being tried twice for the same offense; prohibited by the 5th Amendmentto the U.S. Constitution. '[T]he Double Jeopardy Clause protects against three distinct abuses: [1] a second prosecution for the same offense after acquittal; [2] a second prosecution for the same offense after conviction; and [3] multiple punishments for the same offense.' U.S. v. Halper, 490 U.S. 435, 440 (www.google.com)

    With double jeopardy, you have to make a distinguisment between, "same" and "similar". You can't be convicted twice for the "same" offense, but you can for "similar" offenses.
