Bronfein Family Law Clinic student-attorneys Madison Kyger and Taylor LoSchiavo testified Thursday (Feb. 23, 2017) before the Maryland House of Delegates’ Judiciary Committee in support of House Bill 471, which would reduce the number of crimes that automatically place young people under the jurisdiction of the adult criminal justice system, Professor Dana Shoenberg reports.

The bill would move gun-possession crimes, first-degree assault and armed robbery to the original jurisdiction of the juvenile court, but it would still permit youths to be waived up to adult court by a juvenile court judge in certain circumstances.

The bill was sponsored by Del. Charles E. Sydnor III (D-Baltimore County).
