The Juvenile Justice Initiative (JJI) just released a Special Report on the Automatic Adult Prosecution of Children in Cook County. Get it here!
Illinois should restore authority over whether a child under 18 should be tried in adult crimi-nal court to juvenile court judges. This will bring Illinois in line with the majority of states, and will ensure better outcomes for children, for victims, for taxpayers, and for public safety.
If you think children deserve individualized hearings before being tried please join our campaign.
