The Center for Court Innovation Youth Justice Board has recently released a comic book entitled "I Got Arrested! Now What?" . The comic follows a young person arrested for delinquency as his case makes its way through the challenging shoals of the juvenile justice system. The Board wrote the comic to provide young people and their families with a plain language, easy-to-understand guide that hopefully demystifies the process and offers useful tips to achieving better case - and life - outcomes. The comic was a product of a collaboration with the Center for Urban Pedagogy and the Department of Probation. It is, in a word, terrific. In the near future, the Department of Probation will begin distributing the pamphlet to all respondents coming through intake following a delinquency arrest.
