Raise the Age

Date: 04/29/13
Time: 6-8
Audience: Public
Location: CSB Auditorium

To help bring awareness and advocate for minors (under the age of 18) charged with a crime to serve their time in the juvenile justice system instead of having judges retain their current authority to transfer youth to the adult system for any felony. New York is one of the only two states in the nation that prosecutes all 16 and 17 year olds who are charged with crimes in the adult criminal justice system, regardless of the severity of the crime. It's time to raise the age to protect our youth.
