Children involved in juvenile court face collateral consequences from their delinquency adjudications which can prevent barriers to their future success and can cause harm to their well-being. Some of these stem from system exposure and others extend beyond the time spent under court supervision but are related to their prior court involvement and adjudication. For example, after successfully completing their dispositions, many youth face significant hardships enrolling back in school, finding employment, or accessing ongoing treatment or health care. Dr. Ashley Nellis, Senior Research Analyst from The Sentencing Project, joins us on the next Spotlight on Youth to discuss the intersection of collateral consequences for youth who are court involved. The issue is imperative on policy and practice levels and Dr. Nellis will share what is happening in both arenas to reduce and eliminate the problem.
