Description

The Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice (CCJJ), after studying how several other states were handling their most serious cases, developed its own “hybrid of different laws aimed at dealing with the state’s most violent and chronically delinquent youths.” The Serious Youth Offender Law (SYOL) was partially the result of Utah’s goal to “get tough on the most violent teenage criminals.”
