Default Juveniles charged as adults being moved


They've been kept in an adult facility with minimal educational programming but are now being moved to the youth detention system. Other changes are in the works.

According to the release, the legislation would ban the use of solitary confinement for youth in all county detention facilities. It also calls for the Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention to take into consideration the developmental needs of young people in detention and take steps to ensure they have access to education and therapeutic programs that will set them up for success when they leave the detention facility.
