Attorney General Nessel Applauds Signing of Juvenile Justice Bills

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel released the following statement in response to Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist signing the Juvenile Justice legislative package on behalf of Governor Gretchen Whitmer:

“As prosecutors, rehabilitation must be our top priority for children in our criminal justice system. These new laws lean on smart investments, best practices and innovative tools to carry this goal forward. Building a support network that can offer Michigan youth the highest likelihood of finding a stable and successful life outside of the criminal justice system is a priority of mine, and I’m grateful that the legislature and Governor have now addressed this need.”
