Fact Sheet: Right-Size Interventions for Youth to Prevent Recidivism (HB1381) – Nov 2023

Research shows that most youth are not on a path toward adult crime, and over-involvement in the juvenile justice system can increase their likelihood of reoffending. HB 1381 (Rep. D. Miller) reduces the prosecution of children as if they were adults, expands diversion, limits detention and out-of-home placement, and tailors financial obligations in Pennsylvania’s juvenile justice system.
