Christina Jones started this petition to US SUPREME COURT and

Juveniles that are being accused of a crime or found guilty for a crime should ne in the Juvenile Justice System and not bound over or for a mandatory transfer to adult court and jail. A child should stay in juvenile detention until they turn 18! It is cruel and unusual punishment to send them off to an adult prison!! Juveniles are not mentally ready for adult prison. And a juvenile judge should be the judge and not an adult court judge. My son is currently going through this now and I find it to be unfair and the law should be changed to where all juveniles regardless of the crime committed should go before a juvenile judge instead of them having a mandatory transfer to adult court! Please me stop this injustice and allow them to be judged in the juvenile justice system because they are not mature enough to go in front of an adult court. There is plenty of scientific facts that shows a human brain does not develop fully until they are in their 20's. We need to stop the injustice of allowing for a juvenile  to have a mandatory transfer to adult court. And their mental health status should also be apart of the judges ruling for sentencing! And a minor child should not be questioned in any manner unless their parent/legal guardian is present during the questioning!
