The chosen method in this research-based paper is empirical normative legal research. This report presented the findings of research that forms of sanctions given to children who commit crimes regulated in the Law on the Juvenile Criminal Justice System are beyond Principal Crimes (criminal warning, criminal with conditions, job training, mentoring in institutions and prisons) and Additional Crimes (Expropriation of profits derived from criminal acts; and Fulfillment of customary obligations). As well, forms of imposition of sanctions against children in the Jayapura IA Class District Court, judges tend to impose criminal sanctions to provide deterrent effect of imprisonment and learning effect. Based on results obtained in this line of research, as a special judge in Jayapura District Court in imposing sanctions on children must really think of the best interests of children by placing criminal sanctions as ultimum remidium. Furthermore, the Diversion system should be used in solving child cases as stipulated in the Juvenile Criminal Justice System.
