Spaull named to new state commission

Elaine Spaull, executive director for the Center for Youth Services Inc. and a member of Rochester City Council, has been appointed to a new state commission designed to help those in New York’s criminal and juvenile justice systems.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the Commission on Youth, Public Safety and Justice in his 2014 State of the State Address to help young people become productive and successful, the governor’s office said Wednesday.

New York is one of two states where offenders ages 16 and 17 can be charged as adults, Cuomo said a statement.

“It’s time to improve New York’s outdated juvenile justice laws and raise the age at which our children can be tried and charged as adults,” he said.

Spaull is among 15 commission members. She is the top administrator at the Center for Youth, an organization founded more than 30 years ago by teenagers.
