Beginning this month 17-year-olds arrested for nonviolent crimes are being seen as juveniles in the eyes of Louisiana's justice system.

A 2016 law, often referred to as the Raise the Age Louisiana Act, went into effect March 1. This is the first phase, with the second to come in 2020 for violent offenses.

The bill was part of a package of juvenile justice reforms and raised the age for teenagers prosecuted as adults in Louisiana.
