Everyday in the U.S., thousands of teenagers inside jails, prisons and juvenile halls are held in solitary confinement. The practice causes severe, longterm mental illness and increases institutional violence. The Center for Investigative Reporting discovered that no federal laws limit the number of weeks or months that teenagers can be locked in isolation for up to 23 hours a day. Only seven states have placed any limits on prolonged solitary for minors.
