Abstract

This chapter describes changes in the way juvenile delinquents were dealt with in the first part of the twentieth century in the Netherlands, particularly in relation to the introduction of the juvenile court judge and of supervision orders. It then goes on to describe how such orders were used in practice by judges and supervisors in cases of minors charged with sexual misbehaviour (mainly girls). Supervision orders involved families. They could lead to internment in institutions or employment placements in families. Judges, who were expected to embody a paternal figure, had a significant role to play in these orders and had a fair degree of discretion to perform it.
