Xmas Stocking Stuffers

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the blog, not a creature was stirring… except these three stories, none of which have anything to do with Christmas:

First, from the AP: A judge decides not to transfer a violent juvenile offender to adult court.

Second, from the Indianapolis Star: A new task force convenes in Marion County to improve the way the juvenile court handles child welfare cases.

Third, from the Baltimore Sun: On the beat with Leo Zilk, a Juvenile Services officer in Baltimore, as he tracks down teens who have broken the rules of their pretrial release. An accompanying editorial advocates investing in a “family-focus approach” to address the problem of housing “kids who have nowhere to go.”
