Greenville News series documented the failure of the juvenile justice system in South Carolina--from the courtroom to the inadequate political commitment to address the problem, to the juvenile prisons that don't punish or rehabilitate. Less than one in three juveniles convicted in 1,255 cases of serious crimes served any time behind bars in 1993. Judges let juveniles convicted of kidnapping, rape and armed robbery walk out of their courtrooms on probation.(April, 1995)
