Synopsis: Texas Is Now One Of Only 4 States That Charges 17 Year Olds As Adults. During The 2017 Legislative Session There Were Two Bills Being Introduced That Addressed This Issue. One To Raise The Age Of Adult Prosecution From 17 To 18, And The Other Would Allow People Currently In Prison For A Crime Committed Before The Age Of 18 A Chance At Early Parole. Right Now Texas Sentencing Laws Ignore Recent Scientific Evidence On Adolescent Development And Neuroscience, And The State’s Current Parole System Provides No Viable Mechanism For Reviewing A Case After A Young Person Has Grown Up And Matured. Can We Morally Keep Sending Our Youth To Adult Prisons?
