“In Their Own Words” — Voices of Youth Transferred to Criminal Court in Ohio

In Their Own Words is a story collection project to raise awareness about youth under the age of eighteen who are facing charges in the adult criminal courts in Ohio.  Full stories are available here.  There is no similar project in Indiana, yet, there is a resonance of the voices that advocates hear in juvenile court in any state.

The project is supported by the Children’s Law Center, Inc. in Kentucky, which also houses the Central Juvenile Defender Center, one of nine regional centers of the National Juvenile Defender Center responsible for assisting juvenile defense attorneys throughout the region, including Indiana, with public policy advocacy and training.
