    Direct File in Florida: The Perils of Prosecuting Children as Adults (On-Demand CLE)

    Like a handful of states, Florida allows transfers of children detainees without the input from a judge to adult systems and 99% of children in adult court are sent there by a prosecutor's decision alone, also known as "direct file". After completing this program, you will have gained insightful information on the consequences of direct filing, both on the children and the community.

    Florida transfers more children to the adult criminal justice system than any other state in the United States. Children as young as 12 years old have been charged in adult courts. Like only a handful of other states, Florida allows transfers without the input from a judge; 99% of children in adult court are sent there by a prosecutor’s decision alone, also known as “direct file.” With their different perspectives on this important issue in mind, our panelists will engage in a discussion on the consequences the legal fiction of treating children as adults in criminal proceedings has on the children and the community.
