Sue Burrell Interviewed for Articles Re DJJ Facilities Closure

YLC staff attorney Sue Burrell was interviewed by the Daily Journal and Bay Citizen newspapers in connection with a February 2012 report from the California Legislative Analyst’s Office (LAO) on the Governor’s plan to close the Division of Juvenile Facilities. The LAO Report proposes a less abrupt process and urges the need for an intensive planning process that addresses current county capacity issues, the danger of increased adult court filings, and the need for additional financial resources to help counties build local programs. Sue praised the report as providing a thoughtful analysis of the issues as California juvenile justice reform moves into its next phase.
