With a rise in violent crimes among juveniles and doubts about the efficiency of rehabilitation programs, however, has come public and political pressure to treat youthful offenders like adults. A number of states, like Florida, have authorized direct filing of juveniles into the adult system if they are charged with certain crimes, along with mandatory minimum sentences for first-time offenders.
