Raise the age for Children to be tried as adults to 18

We want to raise the age for how old children need to be for them to be tried as an adult in court. We want to raise the age in Illinois to 18 years old. Children are too young and inexperienced to be making life altering decisions. The older a child is, the more experienced they are. No child should be in prison for their life because of a stupid decision they made as a teen. Children should be children, not prisoners.
