‘Juvenile as adults’ bill dies in special session

(MissouriNet) — A top priority for Missouri’s GOP governor for the special session on violent crime will NOT be moving forward in the Legislature. House Speaker Elijah Haahr says the juvenile certification bill is dead, because there is no consensus about moving it forward:

[mo6haahr86] :9 “… Senate Bill one came over and there was some concerns about a variety of parts. We thought it was better for the House to break them down and analyze them separately”

The Missouri Senate approved legislation that would allow Missouri courts to certify juveniles 14-18 as adults for violent weapons offenses. The House did vote today (Tuesday) to give final approval to five other crime bills, including witness protection legislation.
