Beyond Scared Straight -Juvenile Justice Reform: Keep Your Coins, We Want Change! | Juvenile Justice | Scoop.it

When a convict is released back into society there are many things going through his
mind. Such as "what should I do with my life from this point forward” and “How and where
should I start?” However, our correctional system is not doing anything to help assist an exconvict to adapt to societal-norms. Many people would argue that if they want to change, they
will have to do it on their own.

Beyond Scared Straight -Juvenile Justice Reform: Hearing scheduled to decide fate of teen blamed for Bensalem man's death

Beyond Scared Straight -Juvenile Justice Reform: Hearing scheduled to decide fate of teen blamed for Bensalem man's death | Juvenile Justice | Scoop.it

Winston Charleston of Philadelphia was charged as an adult with third-degree murder in July. He allegedly went joy riding in his mother's Chrysler in Northeast Philadelphia, smashing into a Volkswagen carrying Daniel Fouracre, 22, who was killed.A Philadelphia judge is expected to decide Wednesday whether a 14-year-old boy should be treated as a juvenile in a case alleging he caused a wreck that killed a Bensalem man.
Legal experts said the judge will likely send the case to the city's juvenile court because of Charleston's age and the nature of the charges.
Bruce Fouracre, the victim's father, said he has conflicting feelings, although he leans toward adult charges.
"I'm kind of torn in two different directions, to tell you the truth," Fouracre said. "No matter what, he's going to be back out. But I don't really have faith in the juvenile justice (system's ability to rehabilitate). In the long run, I want the longest I can keep him off the street."
Charleston remains in custody in lieu of $600,000 bail.
A hearing to decide whether Charleston should be charged as a juvenile is scheduled for Wednesday morning before Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Benjamin Lerner. The judge is expected to make a decision that day.
Charleston's attorney, James Lyons, declined to comment on the upcoming hearing. So did Philadelphia prosecutor Beth McAffery.
