PROSECUTORS  DO "NOT" CALL THE SHOTS  ANYMORE......EXCELLENT ARTICLE.......Please read and share

Excerpt...."In a landmark ruling, the state's highest criminal court ruled Thursday that juvenile offenders cannot simply be transferred into adult court on the basis of the severity of the crimes they are charged with, a decision will make it far more difficult to certify a young offender to stand trial as an adult, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports."

"Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, in a split decision, ruled the way prosecutors have demanded, and received, juvenile offenders into the adult justice system for decades is flawed."
