The Marc Steiner Show

October 6, 2010 – Hour 1

Laws concerning charging juveniles as adults vary from state to state in the US.  Here in Maryland, juveniles convicted of 33 different offenses are automatically charged as an adult.  This hour, we discuss a report released this week which asserts that trying juveniles as adults is counterproductive.

Our guests are:

Leesa Hatcher – Mother of a juvenile who was incarcerated

"Todd" – Released in prison last March, was incarcerated as a juvenile

Laura Furr – Senior Director of Youth Justice Initiatives for Community Law in Action

John Nethercut – Executive Director of the Public Justice Center
