Weekend Processing for NYC Juv Arrests

Thanks to a recent decision by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New York City has become the first jurisdiction in the state that can process juvenile delinquency arrests on weekends. Until May 31, processing in Family Court was available only on weekdays; a teen brought in on Friday night would be held until Monday morning, regardless of the severity of the alleged crime.

“We don’t want dangerous kids out on the streets, but we also don’t want to separate low-risk kids from their families and their schooling a day longer than we have to,” John Feinblatt, Bloomberg’s criminal justice coordinator, told the New York Times.
