Florida juveniles wouldn’t be tossed into the adult court system until a judge gets a chance to review their criminal cases under a bill endorsed Tuesday by a House committee. Currently, prosecutors have the power to charge juvenile defendants as adults without any judicial review.

The legislation (HB 575) would require a judge to hold a hearing to decide whether prosecutors can charge juveniles as adults or have their cases returned to the juvenile system.The measure would also prohibit juveniles from being held in an adult jail until after the judge’s review. It would also eliminate the automatic transfer of juveniles into the adult courts for a series of criminal charges, although prosecutors would still have the discretionary power to charge those juveniles as adults.

The bill is a response to the fact that Florida leads the nation in prosecuting children as adult criminals.
