Whitney Untiedt Co-Authors Article on Constitutional Rights in Juvenile Cases
April 30, 2017
Director of Pro Bono Initiatives Whitney Untiedt co-authored an article titled, “Moving Forward from Gault,” about the application of constitutional rights in juvenile prosecutions. Written in conjunction with Emory University Law Professor Randee Waldman and Casey McGowan, a soon-to-be staff attorney for the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, the article provided a historical review as well as best practices for the defense and prosecution of juvenile offenders.

Written for The Champion, the magazine for the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Untiedt's article addresses how the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court decision In re Gault contributed to the development of subsequent jurisprudence around the treatment of juvenile cases based on the notion that minors and their actions differ from adult behavior. Whitney and her co-authors also discussed how this topic continues to be of critical importance, as state courts have been interpreting federal statutes on such issues in ways that may have not always reflected established precedent.
