Support SB 215/HB 471 to start all youths’ cases in the juvenile system


Ask your legislator to improve public safety, protect youth and families and ensure that youth are held accountable appropriately and justly by stopping the automatic prosecution of youth as adults. SB 215/HB 471 ensures that all youth would begin their case in the juvenile justice system, allowing a state’s attorney to ask a judge to review the youth’s case to move it to the adult system if necessary.
