On October 11, 2017, ten juvenile justice-related bills were signed into law. The ten reforms focus on increasing youths' parole opportunities, reducing punishment for those who committed crimes as children or teens, allowing courts to seal certain juvenile records, restricting maximum sentencing for youth, limiting administration fees charged to families with children in juvenile detention, creating a "youth Miranda Law," and creating a youth honorable discharge program.
