NOTE: Please click here for the most recent version of SB 1008, which encompasses other youth justice reform measures. 

The Oregon Youth Authority does good work helping young people take accountability and turn their lives around. All that work, the public resources spent, and the future of those young people gets tossed out the window when we automatically transfer youth to adult prison when they turn 25.

SB 966 would require an additional review before transfer to adult prison where a judge can determine if the 25-year-old has been sufficiently rehabilitated, instead to transfer them to community-based supervision.
