Albany- There's disagreement over reforms the governor signed into law Monday. The law limits when a juvenile court judge can place a minor in a Youth Development campus.
It targets juvenile offenders who violate probation or commit felonies but gives breaks to others to help reduce Y-D-C overcrowding. Some prosecutors say it's a mistake.
"I think it's a step backwards because it takes away some power of the juvenile court, when we've got juveniles who need to have some tough measures handed out," says District Attorney Ken Hodges.
The bill also provides more alternative sentencing programs and reduces the minimum stay in a Y-D-C from 90 to 60 days.
