'By the time she was 16, Kara had been detained three times—one of the
nearly 50,000 adolescent girls who enter the courts every year because
of a system of criminalizing low-level offenses that has long been
biased against girls. "My biggest thing was not making my bed," Kara
says. "That was considered a violation of probation. That I got locked
up for it is ridiculous."'
Excellent and moving article on a serious problem.
