RELEASE|April 25, 2019
Contact: Roger Hauck

Rep. Hauck speaks on the House floor Thursday afternoon, prior to House passage of his legislation in a bi-partisan package of bills that would end the policy requiring all 17-year-olds to be treated as adults in Michigan’s criminal justice system. Including 17-year-olds in the juvenile system has been shown to reduce reoffending by 34 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control.  Prosecutors will continue to have some discretion, allowing them to waive minors who commit violent crimes into the adult system when appropriate.
