Overdue for Justice: An Assessment of Access to and Quality of Juvenile Defense Counsel in Michigan


National Juvenile Defender Center (NJDC)

Abstract

Released on June 29, 2020, the Michigan Assessment is based on interviews, court observations, and research conducted by a team of experts who analyzed Michigan’s juvenile defense systems and delinquency courts over the course of a year.

The assessment found that while Michigan is working to improve its adult criminal defense system, “juvenile defense practices are not subject to any state standards, receive no state funding, and have no consistent monitoring or enforcement in place to ensure youth receive effective counsel at all critical stages.”
