America's Juvenile Justice System: How the U.S. (Mis)Handles Juvenile Crime

/

For the Defense with Criminal Defense Attorney Brad Koffel kicks off its final episode of March 2019 with a close look at the U.S. Juvenile Justice System, which incarcerates more children than any other country in the world – by a wide margin.

As a father of four and criminal defense lawyer of 26 years, Attorney Koffel discusses the visceral response of seeing a young boy or girl behind bars, how easily it can happen, and how few Americans know about the systemic and disturbing problems of how the nation adjudicates juvenile cases and incarcerates children. David A. Hejmanowski, regarded among the best Juvenile Judges in Ohio, joins Brad in the studio to elaborate on these cases.
