CJCJ in the news: Revolving justice: SF agencies tackle recidivism

"Adachi's office has developed the three-year-old Legal Educational Advocacy Program, or LEAP, which works with young clients, their families, and school staffs "to create the linkages and supports necessary for a permanent exit from the juvenile justice system," according to his office.

In the just over two years after it started, 90 clients had successfully completed court probation, and fewer than 13 percent of them had reoffended six to 12 months after exiting the program, according to Adachi's office. The agency doesn't have information on whether those youth reoffended as adults."
