Sue Burrell Interviewed on Lengthy Sentences for Juveniles

YLC Staff Attorney Sue Burrell was interviewed by the Friends Committee on Legislation of California (FCLCA) about legislation that would provide an opportunity for review of lengthy sentences for juveniles tried as adults.   Youth Law Center is a co-sponsor of SB 260 (Hancock), which would provide such youth with an opportunity to demonstrate maturity and rehabilitation after serving a substantial part of their prison sentence.   In the interview, Sue talks about the legal and developmental basis supporting this legislation.  Here is a copy of the interview.  FCLCA 2013 Newsletter – Interview with Sue Burrell
