The 1997 Revisions to Washington's Juvenile Offender Sentencing Laws: An Evaluation of the Effect of Local Detention on Crime Rates

Open Publication PDF

Steve Aos - July 2002

The Washington Legislature directed the Institute to evaluate the changes made during the 1997 session to the state's juvenile sentencing laws. One policy change in 1997 gave juvenile court judges more discretion to use county detention facilities for juvenile offenders not sentenced to the state. This report examines whether the use of detention affects juvenile crime rates. Cost-benefit estimates are also provided.
