Via Scoop.itJuvenile Justice

Attorneys for a teenage murder suspect have petitioned Pennsylvania Superior Court for the boy’s release, citing rules requiring that accused juvenile offenders receive a hearing within a reasonable amount of time. Stephen Colafella, one of the attorneys for 14-year-old Jordan Brown, confirmed that the defense team filed with Superior Court for Brown’s release, but referred specific questions to Dennis Elisco, who also is representing Brown. Elisco did not return a call Wednesday seeking comment. The Juvenile Law Center, based in Philadelphia, joined the petition, but the attorney working for the center also was not available.
