Youth Rehabilitation Act Report

The DC Council passed the Youth Rehabilitation Amendment Act of 2018, in December of 2018 which seeks to address the lack of specific programming for individuals sentenced under the previous YRA. Currently, there are approximately 250 DC Code Offenders in both the custody of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and the District of Columbia Department of Corrections (DOC) serving sentences under the provisions of the 2018 YRA.

This report explores treatment and programs specifically designed for YRA offenders from the BOP or the DOC as well as the absence of programming and rehabilitative efforts that existed under the 1985 YRA.

For any questions about this report, please contact Kareem McCraney, Program Analyst.
