Juvenile Detention Scrutinized in Contra Costa County
In a highly unusual move, attorneys for the federal Department of Justice and Department of Education weighed in on a lawsuit challenging the way Contra Costa County treats youths in juvenile hall. The lawsuit charges that teens with disabilities are kept in solitary confinement for up to 23 hours a day and are illegally denied special education and rehabilitation services.
