DCF: No adults at Covered Bridges

NEWBURY—The Vermont Department of Children and Families has no plans to house young adults at a proposed juvenile detention center in Newbury.
DCF Commissioner Sean Brown told legislators on June 3 that the Covered Bridges facility will not be taking in “emerging adults.”
The comments came during a session of the Vermont Legislature’s Joint Justice Oversight Committee on June where members were discussing Gov. Phil Scott’s recent veto of S.107, a bill that would allow defendants up to age 20 to avoid public disclosure for a long list of serious crimes in Vermont.
