The Youth Law Center sponsored this bill, which makes it more difficult for youth being tired as adults to be routinely transferred to adult jails. The bill was enacted into law. It adds Welfare and Institutions Code section 206.7, which provides that a juvenile may be transferred to an adult jail, only if the court finds that the minor poses a danger to the staff, other minors in the juvenile facility, or to the public because of the minor’s failure to
respond to the disciplinary control of the juvenile facility, or because the nature of the danger posed by the minor cannot safely be managed by the disciplinary procedures of the juvenile facility. The findings must be made on the record.
