The lawsuit says children who talk back to teachers, violate dress codes and commit other minor infractions are handcuffed and sent to a youth court where they are denied their rights. Children are handcuffed and arrested in school and incarcerated for days at a time without a probable cause hearing. Children detained wait more than 48 hours for a hearing, in violation of constitution requirements. Children make admissions to formal charges without being advised of their Miranda rights. Children are not routinely granted legal representation during the juvenile justice process.
