Advocates block youth mandatory minimums

Controversial "Audrie's Law" amended to pass committee

Under pressure from CJCJ and other youth advocates, California State
Senator Jim Beall has amended SB 838 (also known as "Audrie's Law")
to remove the provision that would have set a new precedent for
mandatory minimums in the state's juvenile justice system.

After the bill passed unanimously through the state Senate on May 28,
advocates worked to educate state assembly members and citizens on
the dangers of mandatory minimum sentences -
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?CenteronJuvenileandC/3f0a8301ad/5b867647d4/7ba36c5255 . At the June 17 hearing of the Assembly Public Safety Committee,
committee members heard expert testimony against SB 838 from Patti
Lee, San Francisco's Deputy Public Defender and a CJCJ board member -
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?CenteronJuvenileandC/3f0a8301ad/5b867647d4/9cbf6b2d67/utm_content=city.council%40menlopark.org&utm_source=VerticalResponse&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=Text%20Version%20-%20Link%2011&utm_campaign=June%20Newsletter%3A%20Much%20to%20celebrate%20at%20CJCJ . More than a dozen organizations — including CJCJ, Human Rights
Watch, and the Youth Law Center — also lined up to voice their
opposition to the bill.

A week after the hearing, Sen. Beall removed the mandatory minimum
provision and the committee passed the amended bill -
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?CenteronJuvenileandC/3f0a8301ad/5b867647d4/30707cf960 unanimously.

Thank you to all who contacted your representatives and helped
protect our juvenile justice system from these punitive and
ineffective policies!
