Juvenile Delinquency

I fight against the wrongful arrest, excessive punishment and/or unjust treatment of juveniles.

Too many Hoosiers under the age of 18 are placed within the State’s justice system.  Not yet adults, they are cast into a world which often requires maturity beyond their years.

Because Indiana’s juvenile offenders and at-risk youth have special needs, problems and concerns, I work to keep them out of the juvenile justice system as well as support projects that prevent and/or reduce juvenile crime while promoting positive youth development through community collaboration.
