Would you voluntarily allow a 17 year old child to make a decision for you that will have a profoundly negative effect on your life over the next 20 or more years? So, why tolerate them making such a decision for themselves?

A person younger than 18 cannot receive a sentence of death or life without parole. This declaration, by the US Supreme Court, was primarily made due to scientific evidence showing that human brains don't fully develop the abilities needed to make considerate, rational, and well-informed decisions until at least age 26. Laws involving adult privileges are in accord with these findings, because they exclude those under 18 from voting, renting cars, and/or apartments, or going out for drinks.

The only place where 17 year old children are automatically classified as "adults" is a criminal prosecution in the States of Texas, Georgia, and Wisconsin. Additionally, court certified children, as young as 14, can be sentenced to serve a minimum of 40 calendar years, just to become parole eligible in Texas.

Over the last few years, many States have passed "Raised the Age" laws, raising the age of juvenile court jurisdiction to age 18. During the last two Texas legislative sessions, in 2017 and 2019, the "Second Look" bill has been introduced, but not voted on. It calls for parole reform that will grant offenders convicted of crimes committed before they were 18, the opportunity for parole eligibility, once a maximum of 20 calendar years is served. Not parole guaranteed, but at least the chance to prove they have changed and are worthy of being free again. Twenty years is more than enough time for a person to grow into someone better.

With the help of diligent, understanding, and sympathetic people like you, we can get Texas to pass one, if not both of these bills, during the next legislative session, in 2021. We can also get similar laws passed in Georgia and Wisconsin. Show your support by promoting the bills on social media (#Tex2ndLook2021 or #RaiseTheAgeTexas), or by contacting Texas Congress members as well as newspapers/shows, Podcast, and helpful celebrities, (Oprah? Charles Koch?). We need all of the help we can get. Help push Texas, Georgia, and Wisconsin to pass bills that will help correct the injustices of these antiquated laws.

Thanks for the help. It is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Glen Taylor
