Excerpt from The Juvenile Delinquent and the Young Men's Christian Association<br><br>Some of the ideas of the juvenile court were practiced before the actual formulation of a juvenile court law. The probation system was practiced in a limited form by some judges by the use of suspended sentences. In the state of Maine a separate children's court was established and the probation system was in use, but it was necessary to convict the child of a crime before he could be placed on probation. In some parts of Canada, sepa rate courts were held for children. In New York, some features of the juvenile court law were in use. In Chicago, probation officers were provided by a committee of women, and their ser vices were used by some of the judges without express warrant of law.<br><br>The juvenile court law as we know it now, took form in Illinois in 1899. If Illinois had not acted, a juvenile court law would doubtless have come about sooner or later, for the reason that the need of special provision for these classes of children was widely felt.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
