Youth Transfer: The Importance of Individualized Factor Review

Jeree Thomas
The Campagin for Youth Justice (CFYJ)


In 2012, the Attorney General’s National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence recommended to prosecutors “[w]henever possible, prosecute young offenders in the juvenile justice system instead of transferring their cases to adult courts.” The research supporting this recommendation is clear that youth have unique needs that require a specialized justice system equipped to handle those needs. When judges or prosecutors transfer youth to the adult criminal justice system, the lifelong collateral consequences of that placement affect both the youth, and their communities.
