Prof. Perry Moriearty Quoted in the Star Tribune about Minnesota Legislation to End JLWOP

Professor Perry Moriearty was quoted in the Star Tribune in an article discussing a massive change in Minnesota's juvenile justice system. A newly passed public safety bill aims to create a new statewide office dedicated to keeping youth from being sentenced in courts, while still holding them accountable. Discussing the change, Professor Moriearty stated, "We have a lot of people sitting in prison now who've been there for decades for juvenile offenses,  who have done everything they can possibly do to show that they're ready to come home."
