SB 6524 relates to special consideration in the sentencing of children for crimes in adult court. The bill would add a new mitigating circumstance accounting for the defendant’s age, sophistication, and role in the crime if the defendant is under adult court jurisdiction for a crime committed as a minor that would allow a court to impose an exceptional sentence below standard range if proven through a preponderance of evidence.
