On June 10th 2014, the Michigan Council on Crime and Delinquency released “Youth Behind Bars”, a report that chronicled the impact of prosecuting and charging youth in Michigan’s Adult Criminal Justice System.
The report was headlined by coverage from the Detroit News, Michigan’s Bridge Magazine/Mlive, and Michigan Radio. It was also picked up by the Michigan Associated Press, which helped it circulate in dozens of local magazines and TV stations. MCCD staff members have interviewed on local news stations around the state, including WDET and WKAR.
