Two young offenders prepare for their hearings in one of the seven states that grant parole for juveniles.
Only seven states offer parole for juvenile offenders. Colorado is one of them. In this episode of the groundbreaking series PAROLE BOARD, INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM gets an inside look at the youth parole process in the state by tracking the cases of two young men.
The first is John Bagdonas, 18, who is serving a one-year sentence in the Coloarado Youth Correctional System after violating the terms of his probation for vandalizing and robbing a series of cars and trucks. The second is Paul Duran, 17, a former gang member serving one to two years for aggravated motor vehicle theft, eluding police, and burglary. Through interviews with both inmates, their lawyers, youth justice advocates and the members of the nine-member Parole Board, COLORADO JUVENILES offers a gripping look at the way the state handles the difficult problem of youth offenders and parole.
