The justice system
Frequently, a crisis could have been a risk factor that eventually led to the juvenile entering the justice system. Especially when crisis intervention is needed, it is very important to be able to identify ethical situations and ethical strategies associated with juvenile offenders.
Continuing in your role as a juvenile court probation officer and using the same client, Jennifer Scott, from the Week 2 assignment, examine ethical challenges that can impact supervision strategies by creating a 9- to 14-slide with written speaker notes in the notes section of each slide advocacy presentation that will be shown to the judge during a hearing on your client’s risk and needs. You may want to review her background again. See attatched file
Specifically, your letter should do the following:

Identify 1 ethical challenge that affects your client.
Apply 3 ethical strategies that will address the challenge.
Examine the role you will have as an advocate.
Discuss how advocacy can be used for this situation.
Recommend actions that would lead to the desired change.
Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words and a referenced source:
What are classification instruments (i.e., risk and need assessments), and what role do they play in selecting correctional alternatives for juveniles? Would you recommend any specific classification instruments? Explain your rationale.
