The Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) released its National Standards for the Care of Youth Charged with Status Offenses which offer concrete policy and practice recommendations for preventing or limiting court involvement of youth charged with non-delinquent offenses. In advance of this release, Marie Williams, from CJJ, developed a two-page summary of the important issues for juvenile defense counsel to consider when representing status offenders – which was produced for and distributed at the 17th Annual Juvenile Defender Leadership Summit last month.
For a full list of organizations that have endorsed, the complete text of the National Standards, information about requesting a training, and additional content on some of the issues covered by the National Standards, please visit the Safety, Opportunity & Success project on CJJ’s website.
