Juvenile Delinquency and Mental Health Issues

What if you are a juvenile court judge and a chronic
juvenile offender who has recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder appears
before you? You have been made aware that the offender is currently under the
care of a psychiatrist and is on psychotropic medication. Does this knowledge have an effect on how you sentence the juvenile? To what degree do you personally
believe psychology plays a role in criminal behavior?
