005 – Unintended Consequences: Sentencing Juveniles As Adults

Prosecuting juveniles in the adult system actually increases the likelihood that they'll reoffend - so why do the courts do it? Erin Davies, Executive Director of the Juvenile Justice Coalition, joins Steve and Jeff to discuss juvenile bindovers, how an undeveloped frontal lobe really impacts your kids and their decision-making, politically-motivated ways to waste $180,000 a year, and what some people are doing to help fix the system.
