LD 1397, An Act Regarding the Admissibility of Certain Statements of Juveniles, Approved by Gov. Mills!
On June 6th 2019, Gov. Mills approved LD 1397, An Act Regarding The Admissibility Of Certain Statements of Juveniles, into law. This legislation defines that in the event a youth is not successful with the Restorative Justice process, and the case goes to trial, no participant from the RJ process can be called to testify against them.
This is a big win for RJ because it is the first definition of Restorative Justice in the juvenile code.
