CENTER ON JUVENILE AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE repos
As bills make their way through committee, CJCJ takes a moment to review promising legislation and unfortunate scare tactics in the area of criminal and juvenile justice. Among the most courageous: Assembly Member Sally Leiber proposes an end to youth prisons; Assembly Member Carter proposes restorative justice in juvenile justice; Senator Yee proposes the end of life without parole sentences for juveniles convicted of murder. Governor Schwarzenegger has also presented various reform possibilities in his 2007/08 proposed budget, some of which take a good first step toward effective correctional policy.
