The Impact of the Serious Youthful Offender Law

Study Dates: 1999 Study Description: The Serious Youth Offender Law (SYOL) is aimed at the serious, violent youth offenders ages sixteen and seventeen. It was intended to provide “more severe” sanctions for the more serious, chronic juvenile offenders and to remove these offenders from costly juvenile programs that appeared to be having little or no impact on this group. This study looks at the implementation of SYOL in Utah.
