Legislation is making its way through the Illinois House that could help change the trajectory for some kids in legal trouble. House Bill 1468 would raise the minimum age for juvenile detention from 10 to 13.

George Timberlake, chairman of the Illinois Juvenile Justice Commission, said research shows detention is harmful for young children, with long-lasting impacts on mental and physical health as well as education and future employment.
