The problems concerning exposing identities of delinquent children by mass media are potential to be detrimental to the future of the concerned, both physical and mentally. The concerned children may not develop naturally to become good citizen whenever their identities exposing to the public. Protection to storifying which exposed identities of delinquent children’s by the press has to be provided because children are still lable emotionally and they are still not fall into the category of legal subject. Therefore the handling of the problems should be as a special need because of the above reasons. That’s why the presence of different treatment to children. The mentioned background has caused my interest to write his paper on the juridicial protection to publication of identities of delinquent children by the press. In this writing, the writer did the research by scanning reports discussing about juridicial protection to publication the identities of delinquent children by the above mentioned dailies, the implement in the fields by Pikiran Rakyat and Sinar Harapan dailies; as well as how the legal resettlement to the transgresion. The method applied in the research was Sociology of Law, namely observation of realities in the fields aimed at finding the fact, the hindrances, including the legal resettlement to their delicts. The analytical method used was descriptive one, in other words resolution of the problem studied by way of elaborating the collection resulted from normative and empirical research, the data contents then were analyzed to provide a conclusion. The form of protection to delinquent children on writing about them in printing media is contained in Law No.23 of 2002 on Child Protection as provided in Articles 64 paragraph (2) point g. whereas, in the Law No. 40 of 1999 on the Press may be read in Article 3 paragraph (1) on the role and function of the press, likewise in Journalistic Ethical Code in Article 5 paragraph (1). The implementation of legislation link to protection to writing of identities of delinquent children has not been provided as it should be, due to the lack of clear and specific regulation to provide protection from publication of identities of delinquent children. Result of research show there have been publications that have not hidden the identities of delinquent children such as in the Pikiran Rakyat dated the 24th of 2005 titling Even Put in Jail Continue to Learn, also in Sinar Harapan Evening (25 April 2007) titling Minutes after Releasing for UN which contents identity by publishing the full name, date of arrest by police and case or what crime was committed, while he was just on the third class of the Secondary School. It can occur because of two general factors, namely seeing from the journalist himself apparently rather did not understand what he wrote, the less accurate news writing, the limit of intellectual capability, pressure from the editor either or the deadline. Besides, seeing from the editor party; it looks like he less observed in sorting which reports reported should be fix to print, less considering the value of report to be published, having vested interest or groups projected in the publication. On the efforts to get law settlement on infringement of writing of the expose of identities of delinquent children can be managed by the printing press companies or printing media, namely by enhancing standard professional of journalism through structured journalistic education, monitoring of working standard of professional journalism through the ombudsman institute, and the evaluation of the presence of printing media through Media Watch. Furthermore, the readers should start efforts after the publication, meaning settlement through the press, through the press council, bringing the case to the court for trial. This writer recommends it is necessary to revise The Law No.23 of 2002 on Child Protection by the government through the DPR on the Articles concerning criminal law provisions to insert legal sanctions which are firm and special for the press in their report writings to hide the identities of delinquent children in printing mass media can be implemented printing the initials or alias of children proven guilty of commiting crimes. Also it is needed to the existence of active participating role ang continuing in monitoring rights of delinquent children by the press.
