Child advocates pushing lawmakers to raise age for youth accused of minor offenses, WSOCTV (11.29.2012) PDF Print Email
Tuesday, 04 December 2012 00:00

North Carolina and New York are the only two states that prosecute 16- and 17-year-olds as adults.

Child advocates believe the age in North Carolina should be raised for teens who commit minor crimes.

Those advocates spent the day presenting their case to a legislative subcommittee in Raleigh. Frank Crawford, with the Children's Alliance, is behind the effort to push North Carolina lawmakers to change how teens are prosecuted.

"Generally speaking, 16- and 17-year-olds fare better when you treat them as kids rather than adults,” he said.
