Equal Time- Juveniles in Jail

What to do with minors in the justice system is an ongoing debate. Some people believe for the most serious crimes, minors should be sent to adult prison and serve hard time. Others say that rehabilitation is the fair way to go. This week's episode of Equal Time focuses on the structure of the youth justice system, as well as what community groups can do to help solve the problem. Reporter Ejere Elekwachi speaks with a former juvenile offender, counselors, experts in justice studies and child development, as well as coordinators of special programs in the Bay Area aimed at reducing youth crime.

Equal Time is produced by the San Jose State School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
