Law’s Michael Benza discusses a new pilot program aimed at increasing use of ankle monitors for incarcerated teenagers

With car thefts nearly doubled in Cleveland so far this year, juvenile suspect violates pilot program
WEWS: Michael Benza, professor of practice at the School of Law, discussed a new pilot program allowing incarcerated teenagers to go home with ankle monitors. There are requirements to be part of the program, including not having been arrested with a gun. “It allows them to return home, it allows them to continue their education if they’re going to school, it allows them to continue their jobs if they’re already working so it doesn’t disrupt their lives in the same way as a pretrial detention would do,” he said.
