"Santa Clara Judge To Lead Effort To Overhaul State's Juvenile Justice System"

From SFGate, via NACDL's news-of-interest:

In the news release, Lucero said the bill closed the statewide youth prison system and mandated counties keep their highest-need youth as close to home as possible.

"Evidence has demonstrated that youth in the justice system who stay close to home are more connected to their families, have lower recidivism rates, and are more prepared for the transition back to their community."
