Juvenile In Justice

It’s my second time, third for my sister.

Wyandotte_KS-19

“We’re in for property damage, not “sanction house.” Been here two days. We were trying to steal someone’s tags [license plates.] I was 14 when I first came here. It’s my second time, third for my sister. We live with our mom. Dad lives by himself. I see my dad all the time. I’m in 9th grade, U.U. is in 11th. We aren’t affiliated. Hopefully we get community service. That’s what we’re thinking we’ll get.”

—W.U., age 15

 

W.U. and U.U. [age 16] are sisters. U.U. doesn’t want to be photographed. This situation is EXTREMELY rare and the girls are housed side by side.
