NY State Taking Step to Expand or Update Juvenile Justice Facilities

Governor Cuomo is taking a major step to prepare for the new law that raises the state's age of criminal responsibility.  

Governor Cuomo says the state is about to begin accepting close to 100-million-dollars in construction bids to expand or update juvenile justice facilities across the state.  

Those facilities include the Industry Residential Center in the Town of Rush.

The new law keeps most offenders under 18 out of adult prisons. It will take effect about a year from now for 16-year-olds and a year later for 17-year-olds.
