Learn more about Solitary Confinement for Juveniles
In January 2016, President Obama issued a series of executive actions banning federal prisons from using solitary confinement to punish juveniles and prisoners who commit low level infractions. His orders also lowered the number of days an adult inmate could be subject to solitary confinement from 365 days to 60 days. A recent study found that prisoners who were subject to solitary confinement were 20-25% more likely to be repeat criminal offenders than prisoners who avoided it.

No, its a case by case decision. But prisons should be monitored for high usage of the practice and review if the procedure is being overused. 2 years ago from a Constitution in Clearwater, FL
Certainly for violent behavior. I don't like juveniles to be incarcerated with adult offenders or other teens where they can learn to be worse criminals. 2 years ago from a Constitution in Finley, WA
