Republican State Rep. Joe Sanfelippo is the primary sponsor of two juvenile crime bills that would expand the list of crimes a minor could be incarcerated for and extend the length of time a minor could be sentenced for a crime. He said the bills would target the serious and habitual offenders. He notes the juvenile code needs a complete overhaul because minors today commit more violent crimes.
