Guam - He's known to be "tough on crime," but Senator Brant McCreadie says he also understands that those who deserve a chance to rehabilitate should be given the opportunity. The republican senator has introduced Bill 21 otherwise known as the Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 2015. The bill would allow the Attorney General's Office to determine whether children aged 16 and above should have their case be heard in family court. Under current law, any child 16 and older who is charged with a crime that is a felony of the second or first degree is automatically certified as an adult and cannot avail themselves of the potential benefits of family court. The bill was drafted based on input from the AG's Office.
