With Juvenile Deincarceration, Jerry Miller Was First One Over the Wall

By all accounts, Miller went about the task of deinstitutionalizing juvenile justice without a fair warning or passing apology for those who opposed him. Today’s downsizing, by contrast, is a complex dance of bipartisanship, philanthropic support and legislative maneuvering.

His legacy extends beyond his own accomplishments. Consider the following branches of the Miller family tree:

Vincent Schiraldi and Dan Macallair, two feisty Miller acolytes who co-founded the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice. Macallair still leads the organization; Schiraldi led the reform of D.C.’s dysfunctional juvenile justice agency before heading up probation for New York City.”
