The Time is NOW to Strengthen Miranda Rights For Youth

Patti Lee of our office’s Juvenile Unit spoke at a hearing this week about the need to pass legislation to strengthen the rights of children in SF that are arrested. The new law would expand Miranda consults for all youth 17 and younger who find themselves in a custodial interrogation by SFPD.

“If we get this legislation passed, it will mean a new day for so many of our young clients,” she said.
