Boston Globe supports raising the age: The Boston Globe ran the following editorial on Sunday:
Keep 17-year-olds out of adult prisons APRIL 14, 2013 | Under Massachusetts law, 17-year-olds are treated as adults in the criminal justice system. A sensible effort is underway in the Legislature to raise that age of juvenile jurisdiction to 18.
