The 2006 Reform to the System of Juvenile Justice in Spain (La reforma de 2006 del Sistema Español de Justicia Penal de Menores)
University of Malaga
Politica Criminal, No. 5, 2008
The 2006 reform to the penal justice system for minors in Spain revolves around an opposite way to its original position based on the idea of special prevention, and it is framed within the commitment of providing harder penalties to serious deeds, especially homicides and sexual aggressions. This way it is intended to aim at higher proportionality between the punishing answer and the seriousness of the committed deed. In the author's opinion, we are facing an orientation change which creates a true model of civic security that has not considered the characteristics of the juvenile delinquency moving away from the international guidelines in the matter, and that it is not by any means justifiable with the reasons that were adduced in the exhibition of motives.
