In February, Campagna attended the American Bar Association (ABA) Midyear Meeting in Atlanta, where he participated as an expert in a panel discussion on “A Proven Response for Teens in Trouble: Creating and Sustaining Quality Youth Courts.” During the discussion, Campagna spoke candidly about his initial experience with youth courts to lawyers from around the country.
In addition to these efforts, Campagna and Castillo have also helped draft a statute that would standardize the use of youth courts statewide. The New York State Bar Association will vote on the measure soon.
“I know from experience that recidivism can be reduced when young people are diverted away from the traditional justice system,” Campagna said. “It is for this reason that I am committed to supporting and advancing youth courts in Nassau County, New York state and beyond.”
