Guest host, Jillian Maas Backman discusses what happens to children who were criminally charged as adults when they leave the criminal justic system. Guest James Dold talks about his life experiences and what he's doing today to foster positive change for children.

In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s states began passing laws to make it easier to transfer children into the adult criminal justice system which exposed them to harsh mandatory minimum sentences and mandatory sentencing enhancements.Today, an estimated 76,000 children are prosecuted in the adult criminal justice system every year. These children can face severe punishment that is not age-appropriate and is disproportionate given their young age and lessened culpability relative to that of adults.
