It's Time To Raise The Age

New York is currently one of only two states -- the other being North Carolina -- that automatically treats 16 and 17-year olds as adults when they are alleged to have committed a crime. This is not good company to be in. Albany is currently considering "Raise the Age" legislation that would raise the age of juvenile jurisdiction to 18, ensure that no 16 or 17-year olds are placed in adult jails, and should originate as many cases of 16 and 17-years olds in Family Court as possible. It must pass.
