LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska lawmakers are holding a public hearing Thursday for a bill that would limit the use of juvenile solitary confinement in facilities holding young people.

According to an Inspector General report, last year more than 500 Nebraska youths ages 11 to 18 were held in solitary 2,686 times.

Scout Richters, an attorney with the Nebraska ACLU, says solitary confinement can cause irreparable psychological damage, especially for young people.

"Young people's brains are still developing up until approximately age 26, and that makes them at a particular risk for developing things like depression, anxiety and psychosis as a result of solitary confinement," Richters states.
