Deadline for New York Governor’s Juvenile Justice Task Force Report Passes, With No Report

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s task force monitoring a major statewide juvenile justice reform was supposed to hand in its first report to the leaders of the state’s legislature 13 days ago, but it appears they missed the deadline.

The task force, comprised of law enforcement officials, social service experts and other senior officials from public sectors, was announced by Gov. Cuomo in April of last year. It was supposed to track how local governments in New York handle the implementation of the Raise the Age law, and whether the reform itself is “effective.”

The law raises the age of adult criminal responsibility from 16 to 18, and bars anyone younger than 18 from being detained in an adult facility. Teens facing more felony charges will still have their cases begin in adult court, possibly facing adult sentences, with opportunities for transfer to family court after a judge’s review.
