Reason.tv sat down with NYRA's president Jeffrey Nadel to discuss how drinking, curfew, and other laws punish young adults. Nadel points to New Jersey's Kyliegh's law as an example of how the unintended consequences of many laws aimed at protecting youth actually endanger them. The law requires drivers under the age of 21 to have a red decal on the license plates of the vehicles they drive, ostensibly to allow law enforcement to be more protective of them.

    Difficulty obtaining housing, employment, and education: the collateral consequences of involvement with the criminal justice system are well known.

In our April 2018 episode of the Advocacy Exchange, our monthly conversation with advocates advancing change, we talked with a juvenile defender and a civil legal aid attorney who have partnered with their counterparts to represent youth facing the collateral consequences of juvenile court involvement.

    What should we do with children who repeatedly commit crime in London? Punish them? Rehabilitate them? Or try to do both? A review of the British youth justice system has found a new approach is badly needed - and that education should be at the heart of the reforms. One nation which prides itself on the way it's been cutting youth re-offending is Spain. Our home affairs correspondent Nick Beake travelled to the south east Spanish coast - to find out how they do it -and was given exclusive access to where young offenders are looked after.

BOOK REVIEW YOUTH JUSTICE AND THE YOUTH COURT By Mike Watkins and Diane Johnson ISBN: 978-1-904380-53-5 Waterside Press www.WatersidePress.co.uk YOUTH LAW EXPLAINED AND REVIEWED An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers This is very much a hands-on book written by Mike Watkins and Diane Johnson from Waterside Press, with a foreword from Chris Stanley. The trio have considerable experience of the workings of this first rung criminal court which handles well in excess of 95% of youth offending with a team of mainly legally unqualified justices who give of their time to serve their local communities. Members of The Bench remain the unsung heroes of civic life, especially in this jurisdiction. Whether you read the book cover to cover, or selectively as a reference to specific areas, you will find your understanding of the youth justice system in England and Wales immeasurably enhanced. Examining in depth the roles of the youth court, police, Crown prosecutors, youth offending teams (YOTs) and youth offending panels (YOPs), this extremely useful work deals with the full spectrum of youth justice processes and issues, beginning with Chris Stanleys foreword which contains a brief yet fascinating history of youth justice. For example, did you know that the youth court is 100 years old? It was established by the Children Act 1908 and implemented in April 1909. The Act represented a reform and reflected an evolving change in public attitude which, in fact, was a long time in coming, following the scandal in 1833 of the nine year old Nicholas White sentenced to death for stealing items worth two pence, although the sentence was commuted to whipping and transportation. The youth justice system continues inevitably to reflect public attitudes and, of course, political will of the current agenda. For example, the key provision of the 1933 Children and Young Persons Act still remains with us, creating the principle, explained by the authors, that the court should have regard to the welfare of the child. It remains with us today, Stanley explains, now sitting alongside the new over-arching principles of sentencing youths issued by the Sentencing Guideline Council (SGC) following the recently implemented Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008, the assessment of seriousness as introduced by the Criminal Justice Act 1991, and the principal aim of the Youth Justice System which is to prevent offending and thereby re-offending. Obviously the YJS falls far short of this noble aim, prompting the authors and so many others who work in the system to call for change. We were impressed by Stanleys suggestion that since much of youth crime is generated by family dysfunction and is therefore well nigh intractable, the youth and family jurisdictions in England and Wales should be combined, as in Scotland for the last 40 years, to form a Family Justice Court which deals with young people holistically, with care and crime handling together. With graphs, tables, diagrams, a glossary of terms, timeline and useful index, not to mention expert commentary and analysis based on the practical hands-on experience of the authors, this book will help guide you through the complexities of the Youth Justice System of England and Wales as it is at present, following the reforms of 2009. Its obviously a must for youth workers, police and magistrates, it should also be required reading for anyone dealing directly or indirectly with youth justice because this is youth law explained and reviewed for 2010.

Nadel points to New Jersey's Kyliegh's law as an example of how the unintended consequences of many laws aimed at protecting youth actually endanger them. The law requires drivers under the age of 21 to have a red decal on the license plates of the vehicles they drive, ostensibly to allow law enforcement to be more protective of them. But the decals have instead lead violent drivers to target those cars; infractions by younger drivers also come with harsher penalties for typical traffic violations. Instead of one-size-fits-all policies that punish responsible youth, Nadel says that decisions about alcohol consumption, work hours, and even voting should be more tailored to individuals, regardless of age. For more on Kyleigh's Law, read Reason magazine's June 2011 story "Dead Kids Make Bad Laws."

Difficulty obtaining housing, employment, and education: the collateral consequences of involvement with the criminal justice system are well known. But many youth who have been involved in the juvenile court system face these same barriers. A partnership between juvenile defenders and civil legal aid can give youth the comprehensive legal representation they need to overcome these collateral consequences. In our April 2018 episode of the Advocacy Exchange, our monthly conversation with advocates advancing change, we talked with a juvenile defender and a civil legal aid attorney who have partnered with their counterparts to represent youth facing the collateral consequences of juvenile court involvement. Serena Holthe, Special Counsel, Post-Disposition at the National Juvenile Defender Center, and Sabrina Forté, Staff Attorney at Bay Area Legal Aid’s Youth Justice Project, explained how these partnerships work and why they are effective. For more, be sure to read Serena Holthe and Hillela Simpson’s Clearinghouse article, “Collateral Consequences of Juvenile Court Involvement: An Opportunity for Partnership.” http://povertylaw.org/clearinghouse/articles/juvenile

What should we do with children who repeatedly commit crime in London? Punish them? Rehabilitate them? Or try to do both? A review of the British youth justice system has found a new approach is badly needed - and that education should be at the heart of the reforms. One nation which prides itself on the way it's been cutting youth re-offending is Spain. Our home affairs correspondent Nick Beake travelled to the south east Spanish coast - to find out how they do it -and was given exclusive access to where young offenders are looked after.

The Youth Advocacy Project at Penn Law aims to leverage the skills and dedication of both social policy and practice students and law students to provide comprehensive support to youth prosecuted as adults. They work directly with The Youth Sentencing & Reentry project to advance its mission to develop holistic, humanizing narratives that mitigate the facts of each case; get cases transferred to the juvenile system; and make crucial connections to community resources providing education, healthcare, housing, and employment. YAP works with youth in Philadelphia who are facing adult criminal charges and aims to communicate a fuller picture of each child's life to highlight their strengths, resiliency, and capacity to change. YAP also continues to support the young person once he or she returns to the community. To learn more, go to https://ysrp.org/staff/youth-advocacy-project-yappenn/.
