Over the past 10 years, eight states have vastly expanded the number of youth covered by their state’s juvenile justice systems by raising the age of criminal responsibility. Soon, only five states will routinely expose 17-year olds to the adult criminal justice system. Please join The Sentencing Project for a webinar presentation featuring juvenile justice advocates working to protect youth and improve justice responses to youth delinquency. Advocates will discuss the challenges that lay before and beyond getting legislation passed.
