KY House bill related to juvenile justice reform advances from committee

Kentucky’s juvenile justice system is likely to undergo some major changes before the end of the 2023 legislative session.

House Bill 3 is one of several juvenile justice reform-related bills that will be considered this year, according to the bill’s sponsor Rep. Kevin D. Bratcher (R-Louisville).

Josh Crawford, a Louisville resident and director of criminal justice initiatives for the Georgia Center for Opportunity, said that portion of the bill only applies to children convicted of serious felony offenses and the information would be relevant when it comes to employment opportunities and firearm purchases.
