Families in California will no longer be forced to pay juvenile detention fees for their incarcerated youth, thanks to Senate Bill 190, which was signed Wednesday by Gov. Jerry Brown.
The bill was introduced by State Sens. Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, and Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, as part of the #EquityAndJustice package, which included four other Senate bills that reformed the criminal justice system.
