Juvenile justice bill clears Ky. Senate

Juvenile justice bill clears Ky. Senate | SocialAction2015 | Scoop.it
(AP) â€" Legislation aimed at having fewer children locked up in juvenile detention centers passed the Kentucky Senate by a wide margin Thursday, providing momentum for some of the biggest proposed changes in decades to the justice system for minors. The bill aims to keep more kids out of detention centers for skipping school, running away or smoking. The bill focuses on early intervention and treatment that could include behavioral health, mental health and substance abuse services. Opponents included Sen. John Schickel, who said the measure would weaken the authority of prosecutors and other local officials in juvenile cases. Westerfield said the bill calls for input from teams from the locality or region to track the progress of young offenders. Terry Brooks, executive director of Kentucky Youth Advocates, said the bill would move the juvenile justice system in the "right direction" and urged the House to pass the measure.

The Central Park 5 Update: Demanding Compensation - YouTube


Supporters of the five young men known as the CENTRAL PARK FIVE, at a New York's City Hall, called for monetary payment following 25 years of an unjust conviction in a case that rocked New York in 1989. The five, wrongly convicted in the brutal rape and attack on a white female jogger, were later found innocent after serving years for a crime neither man committed. New York's newly elected Mayor, Bill de Blasio, had promised during the 2013 campaign that such cases would be settled during his administration. Former and current elected officials who took part in the news conference called on the Mayor to stick to his promise.
