Supervisors approve eliminating fees the county assesses through the juvenile justice system

San Diego County will lighten the financial burden on families with a child involved in the juvenile justice system.

National experts have found such fees correlate with greater recidivism and have no positive impact on public safety.Supervisors Greg Cox and Kristin Gaspar, who co-authored the proposal, said the fees barely affect county public safety revenue, and the new ordinances will provide overdue relief to some families.

“As a county we continue to make meaningful investments to transform our juvenile justice system,” Gaspar said last week. “Yet for many families, they are still facing significant debt as a result of their child’s incarceration, legal representation and community supervision.
