From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "The issues of juvenile crime and the courts will be addressed by Rosemary Sarri, professor and former researcher at the University of Michigan, in the Norman J. and Alice Chapman Rubash Distinguished Lecture in Law and Social Work [today, October 6, 2005 from noon to 2 pm in the Teplitz Moot Court Room in the Barco Law Building] at the University of Pittsburgh...
Sarri will talk on "Prosecuting and Treating Juveniles as Adults in the United States." In the 1970s, she participated in research on juvenile justice. Her work spurred a movement away from incarcerating juveniles in adult jails. She believes the trend is now swinging in the opposite direction." A panel discussion will follow featuring, among others, former Pittsburgh police Cmdr. Gwen Elliott and CrimProf Barry McCarthy of Pitt Law, an expert in juvenile law, criminal law and criminal procedure both in the U.S. and abroad. [Mark Godsey]
