The LNOCC Solitary Confinement Workgroup ultimately became a statewide workgroup on solitary confinement with members from a wide variety of agencies and organizations, both state and national.
LNOCC workgroup members worked on an initial review of the national standards and have now broadened the workgroup to include several other parents attorneys who are interested in the topic.
The LNOCC created a workgroup to address issues related to the deposition of child-victims of sexual assault in response to a presentation during the June 2018 meeting by Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle.
The workgroup reviewed the GAL bill, Charting a Positive Path for the Future, and invited representatives of the Statewide Office of the Guardian Ad Litem to the January meeting of the LNOCC to hear comments and concerns from the LNOCC members.
The workgroup for the University of Miami Report on Confidentiality continued to monitor progress on the report the LNOCC commissioned with the Youth and Family Law Clinic at the University of Miami School of Law to determine how the recommendations of LNOCC 2002 report have been implemented.
In the midst of all this work, the LNOCC reviewed proposed changes to juvenile certification, heard presentations from attorneys who represent children in crossover delinquency/ dependency cases, closely followed developments from the Bar's Criminal Justice Summit, and tracked legislation that affects children throughout the state.
