Fair Sentencing for Youth

 

   

Youth Offender Program: Lower security level for people under age 22. Hear people inside talk about the program.

Click to watch the video and hear young men who’ve just entered prison and benefited from the Youth Offender Program, and older men who wish they’d had it, give advice. When last year AB 1276 became law, young people entering California state prisons got a chance to as one young man describes, not become “fresh meat ” on level IV yards and instead go to yards with education  and vocational opportunities. CDCR just released this video with the voices of men speaking about the program to youth entering prison.
