State lawmakers and local officials held a press conference Tuesday morning to celebrate a series of reforms enacted to better New Jersey’s juvenile justice system.

The reforms include raising the minimum age to waive a child into adult court from 14 to 15 allowing a 60­ day period to evaluate an individual’s case instead of 30 days. Focusing on rehabilitating young offenders the reforms limits the amount of time a juvenile may be held in solitary confinement to no more than 10 days in a month.
