Juvenile Justice in New York (Letter to the Editor by DA Vance)

[…] We can do better than prosecuting and incarcerating 16- and 17-year-olds charged with nonviolent crimes on the same terms as adults. It is long past time for New York to lead in this area. Our legislators can look to four dozen other states to find that a safer and fairer system of juvenile justice is within reach.
