Connecticut Voices for Children released a report entitled ‘No Place for  Child: Alternatives for Children Under 12 in Connecticut’s Juvenile Justice System.’ Children as young as 7 are subject to arrest and detention in the state’s juvenile justice system.  Connecticut Voices engaged in developmental, legal, and social science research to investigate this phenomenon and the implications it has on children, their families, and our state.  This report includes a set of recommendations that includes raising the minimum age of juvenile court jurisdiction to age 12.
