When the Science Says Children But the Law Says Adults: Trying and Sentencing Youth as Adults

April 4th, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

All 50 states have transfer laws that either allow or require children to be prosecuted in adult criminal court for certain offenses. Attorney Marsha Levick, Esq. will provide an overview of the transfer law legal landscape and potential legal challenges to transfer laws. Neuroscientist BJ Casey, Ph.D. will speak about the science of adolescence and explore whether there is a neuroscientific basis for transfer laws as an effective deterrent to delinquency and consistent with rehabilitation. Stephanie Tabashneck, PsyD, JD will then lead a discussion on the role science can play in challenges to transfer laws.
