CJCJ in the news: Jerome Miller, 83; altered treatment of juvenile offenders

Jerome Miller, 83; altered treatment of juvenile offenders

The Boston Globe writes about the life of Jerry Miller and his many powerful accomplishments in the field of juvenile justice, including "the Massachusetts experiment." 

"Ultimately, the Massachusetts experiment was held up as a success in several studies. Juvenile crime did not increase and recidivism fell.

'Jerry represents one of those few people who lived his convictions and would not stray from the path of what he knew to be right, regardless of the personal costs,' said Daniel Macallair of the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice in San Francisco, which Dr. Miller helped start.'
