When fifteen-year-old Gerald Gault and two friends were accused of placing an obscene phone call to a neighborhood woman, the process of obtaining legal rights for young people was set in motion in our court system. While no one denied that what the boys were accused of doing was wrong, the Supreme Court found it unacceptable that the boys did not have the same rights during a trial as adults would. The landmark decision provided for changes in the way our juvenile courts are run, to make them more equal with adult courts.
