Sue Burrell on Juveniles and the Criminal Justice System

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 juvenile 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.

Sue Burrell’s interview begins on page 4 of the Summer 2013 issue of the Newsletter.
