Possible Changes To Youth Prison System In Illinois

Illinois State Capital
Illinois State Capital

Illinois state legislators are considering reforms to the youth prison system.

The reason is to address sexual abuse that was brought to light in a recent federal study. 

That study by the bureau of justice statistics found that more than 15 percent of kids in custody reported being victims of sexual abuse.

It’s one of the highest rates in the nation.

One idea is to have a better grievance process in the Department of Juvenile Justice so kids can lodge complaints without fear of retaliation.

Another idea is to have an ombudsman within the facilities taking kids' complaints before they turn into major problems.
