star this property answer text <p>The vast majority of children and young people have their cases heard by specially trained magistrates in the Youth Court.</p><p> </p><p>Where a trial may involve both youth and adult co-defendants criminal courts must consider whether it is in the interests of justice to keep the defendants together and deal with them in the adult magistrates’ court or the Crown Court. In reaching this decision courts must take into account factors such as age, maturity, culpability, inconvenience to witnesses or injustice to the case as a whole, including whether there are benefits in the same tribunal sentencing all offenders.</p><p> </p><p>Overall crime is down and fewer young people are offending. Proven offending by under-18s has reduced by 44 percent since 2010/11, while the number of first time entrants to the system has fallen by 39 percent over the same period. The number of young people dealt with in the criminal courts has also fallen, reducing by 51% between 2010 and 2013.</p><p> </p><p>HMCTS do not centrally collate data on the number of young people and adults jointly charged and subsequently tried together.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1 shows the number of cases where a child or young person has been tried in (a) the adult magistrates’ court.
