Analysis of Juvenile Aggravating and Mitigating Factors
Group: Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice
The Racial and Ethnic Fairness Commission requested the Utah Sentencing Commission to conduct an analysis of racial disparity in both adult and juvenile sentencing. The Commission requested the research use sentencing guidelines to assess disparity and aggravating and mitigating factors to assess the reasons for disparity. The Utah Sentencing Commission proposed beginning this research effort in the juvenile justice system. During the previous Juvenile Justice Subcommittee meeting, it was proposed that the Research Unit evaluate the availability of aggravating and mitigating circumstances either in juvenile’s case files or in computerized files.
