PITTSFIELD – Under a new juvenile justice plan, District Attorney Andrea Harrington says kids can stay out of the courts and into expanded youth programs with opportunities for health services, jobs, and guidance.

It's estimated that it costs taxpayers $175,000 per year to incarcerate one juvenile.

"To balance accountability with young people's needs, to decrease recidivism, increase supportive relationships between juveniles and caregivers to increase core life skills," said Harrington during a news conference outside the Boys & Girls Club in Pittsfield.

Throughout Massachusetts, the highest recidivism rate is among those ages 18-24 and half of the teenagers in detention have only misdemeanors as the most serious offense.
