California Governor Brown attends a meeting during the COP21 at Le Bourget, near Paris, FranceGovernor Jerry Brown on Wednesday threw his support behind a proposal to give judges greater discretion on whether minors should be tried as adults in California courts.

Elizabeth Calvin, senior children’s rights advocate at Human Rights Watch, said the changes to the way juveniles are handled in the court system would be dramatic if the measure passes.
