About this project

Orange County leads the state in juvenile arrests according to data from the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.
The majority of those arrests are felonies charged to black boys. In this five-part series, 90.7 WMFE reporter Renata Sago documents Orange County’s complex system for handling kids who commit crimes. The stories are told through the lens of three black men who were charged with felonies as children.
