Criminal Justice Reform Report Released in Georgia

| December 20, 2012

Earlier this year, Georgia passed one of nation’s most sweeping pieces of criminal justice reform legislation. The legislation, however, was focused on the state’s adult corrections system. Georgia is now turning it’s attention to the juvenile justice system, and the first step is this report, which was issued yesterday by the state’s Criminal Justice Reform Council.
