Homelessness leads to justice system and vice versa, new report details

from Youth Today

You're 16, homeless and sleeping on a park bench when police grab you at 3 in the morning. Vagrancy, trespassing or a host of minor offenses send you tumbling into the juvenile justice system. Or you're 16, do something stupid with marijuana, get caught trespassing, missing curfews or skipping school. You have a home but no true family support system, and suddenly, with a criminal record, nobody's hiring, school expelled you and your family tossed you out of the house. You too wind up homeless. more
