  10. Upping juvenile criminal age to 18 may be Texas non-starterRead the original story

    9 hrs ago | KXXV-TV Waco

Democratic Sen. John Whitmire says he "hasn't even thought about" whether his committee will have a hearing for bills that propose raising the age of juvenile jurisdiction to 18. Texas' law has been in place since 1918, long before research revealed that a human brain isn't fully developed until age 25. A bipartisan interim committee recommended the change, noting that state law as it stands is at odds with a federal law governing the housing of juvenile inmates.
