Why experts strongly oppose lowering the age of criminal responsibility

Lawmakers are set on having children as young as 12 exposed to the criminal justice system. They ignore years of scientific research and evidence.

Lawmakers push a proposal to lower the minimum age of responsibility (MACR) from 15 to 12 years old despite the obligation to protect what is in the best interest of children.

Experts are strongly opposed to lowering the MACR because years of scientific research and evidence show this will harm children.

The juvenile justice system is already struggling to cope with children in conflict with the law and rehabilitation facilities are sorely lacking.

Lawmakers ignore this and are set to approve the measure before Congress adjourns on February 9, 2019.
