Juvenile crime in Alabama has dropped by 27 percent in the past five years, but the number of kids in the state’s juvenile justice system hasn’t declined, according to a report drafted by a legislative task force.

State lawmakers in 2018 could debate a juvenile justice reform bill — similar to the state’s 2015 prison reform plan — to fix the problem, one lawmaker says, according to The Anniston Star.
