Featured Initiative: RAISE THE AGE TO 18
New York, which has a reputation for being one of the most progressive and forward-thinking states in the nation, is about to become the only state in the country that treats all youths ages 16 and over as adults in its criminal justice system, regardless of the crime committed. This outmoded approach to justice subjects over 40,000 young people each year to the same system of prosecution and punishment as adults—with dire consequences for the young people involved and the larger community. The Crime Commission is seeking to raise the age of criminal responsibility in New York to 18 years old for less serious and nonviolent crimes.
