Bill Would Send California Juvenile Offenders Back to Their Counties

Hosted by

Half the inmates in California’s Juvenile Justice System are about to be sent home—but not because they’ve served out their sentences. Non-violent offenders are spending 23 hours a day in their cells without the rehabilitation and treatment the law provides, and they end up more troubled and dangerous than when they went in.  Now, it’s up to the counties to try to do better.
