Description

The methodology for this analysis has evolved since the passage of HB 210 in June 2003. The Legislature’s Juvenile Justice Review Task Force, the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative, Family Court committees and other groups have expressed intense interest in developing a much better understanding of the criminal justice processes associated with the amenability processes whereby it is decided whether juveniles’ cases will be heard in Family or Superior Court. So, in addition to identifying and tracking HB 210 cases in the Division of Juvenile Rehabilitative Services (DYRS) facilities, the research has been expanded to track the movement of cases back and forth between the adult and juvenile court systems as well as the adult and juvenile correctional facilities. In the past year and one-half, in numerous task force and committee meetings, all those involved have gained a new appreciation of the complexity of the juvenile sections of HB 210.
