Sue Burrell on CBS Local News

YLC Staff Attorney Sue Burrell was interviewed for a KPIX CBS (Channel 5) news story on the Governor’s budget proposal to close California’s Division of Juvenile Facilities to new intakes beginning in January 2013. Reporter Juan Vasquez asked about the impact on counties and the wisdom of the proposal. Sue noted the immense difficulty of turning the state level facilities around despite years of reform efforts, and urged that counties will be much more able to provide youth with what they need to move successfully forward in their lives. The segment first aired on the 6:00 News, January 9, 2013.
