MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Governor Tony Evers says the state needs significant juvenile justice reform.
He discussed the issue at an event Tuesday, April 13, at the Running Rebels community organization in Milwaukee, joined by other state and community leaders.
He touched on a lot of topics, but said the reform starts with treating kids like kids.
"And we're going to change the way we sentence our youth...youth risk treatment needs, the severity of the offenses, and we're going to return 17-year-olds to the juvenile system," Evers said.
He also called on the state Legislature to embrace common sense, evidence-based justice reforms.
