14 state lawmakers introduced a 21-bill package on October 7, 2015. With bipartisan, bicameral support, this package aims to reform Michigan’s juvenile justice system, focusing on raising the age of juvenile jurisdiction from 17 to 18 and permitting youth access to age-appropriate rehabilitative services. Other bills in the package would also prohibit youth under 18 from being placed in adult jails or prisons. Click here to read more on the National Juvenile Justice Network Webpage.
