Cross-Over Youth Project: Bail Condition Recommendations6 months ago 6 months ago
This tool was published by the Cross-Over Youth Project.
HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOL:
Young persons who have experienced trauma face criminal charges at exponentially higher rates. Trauma negatively impacts these youth’s ability to self-regulate, build their core capacities, and relate to others. They are also at a much higher risk of experiencing further trauma. The current system inadequately addresses their needs. Solutions to this systemic disparity require a system-wide approach.
Through our casework the Cross-Over Youth Project has identified onerous bail conditions as a major obstacle to progress for crossover youth.
