In addition, the federal government must show that the state court refused to take jurisdiction or that the state does not have available programs for the juvenile or that there was a particularly bad act of violence or involvement of guns or drugs.
Federal law requires that juveniles convicted in federal court be provided with proper education, and that "whenever possible" they should be kept in a facility "located in or near" their home.
