Douglas T. Cohen previously served as a state appointed guardian ad litem in juvenile delinquency cases, in which children are charged with crimes just like adults, but face very different and daunting outcomes under the Colorado Children’s Code. Convictions for some of these crimes, such as sex offenses, can result in sentences to prisons (known as youth corrections), lifelong stigmas, and the inability to live at home.
