White paper on crime 2011 Part7/Chapter3/Section3
This section compares those of the 644 research subjects by whether they received criminal punishment (248) or not (396), and then examines the status after the relevant discharge of those that received criminal punishment in thereby identifying the factors that obstructed/promoted the reformation/rehabilitation of those admitted to juvenile training schools. This section is structured as follows.
Subsection 1 analyzes the relationship between the status of the 644 research subjects while juveniles, including their history of protective measures, treatment received in juvenile training schools, and status of their parole supervision, etc., and the offenses they committed after their relevant discharge.
Subsection 2 classifies the 644 research subjects according to the type of their index delinquencies and offenses included in all their criminal punishment (the classification made according to the index delinquencies are referred to as delinquency groups and the classification made according to the offenses included in all their criminal punishment are referred to as offense types) and then the relationship between their status while juveniles and the offenses they committed after their relevant discharge for each delinquency group and offense type.
Finally, Subsection 3 examines the living status, etc. of those that received criminal punishment (248) during the period after their relevant discharge until they committed an offense, using judgment documents (for 248 persons) and criminal case records (for 186 persons) in thereby analyzing the relationship between their status after discharge and the offenses they then committed and the factors that promoted their offenses or reformation, etc.
A breakdown of the respective delinquency groups and offense types used in this analysis is as given in the following table. Each group or type consists of those whose index delinquencies for which they were committed to a juvenile training school or offenses in the judgments of all their criminal punishments include those listed in the right column of the table. Those with more than one such delinquency/offense may belong to more than one delinquency group/offense type.
