Detention of Juveniles under 13
The Illinois Appellate Court yesterday ruled that a Cook County Ordinance I sponsored, which prohibited the incarceration of juveniles under 13 at the Juvenile Temporary Detention Center, exceeded our Home Rule powers and was unenforceable.
I am disappointed in the ruling and hope that the Cook County Public Defender will petition for leave to appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court.
The ordinance was intended to protect juveniles from the harm that incarceration at an early age does to a child’s future.
