SUMMARY: A bill is being proposed to lower the age of children being treated as adults in the criminal justice system from 18 to 17. Supporters argue that violent juvenile crime is a major issue, while opponents emphasize that children are not fully developed and should not be treated as adults. Law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges are facing challenges with juvenile crime. The bill is set to go before the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee for further consideration. There have been instances of teenagers committing serious crimes, leading to calls for stricter measures to address juvenile crime.

Many people on the front lines of crimefighting say violent crimes committed by teens are out of control. A bill to force more juveniles to be dealt with in the adult system is getting a lot of support in this month's special session on crime.

A bill to lower the age for children to be treated as adults has moved through the Senate and is headed to the House.
