Paul Dean Jensen, who is also a kid, will serve the rest of his life in the South Dakota State Penitentiary. He focuses on personal goals. He wants to stay out of what inmates refer to as "the hole" an isolation cell. And he wants to stay off medication. But he still dreams.
If a kid stays clean for long enough to satisfy the juvenile court sentence, he's free. But if he messes up, he has to serve his adult sentence.

Richard Quigley, the director of Minnesota's Woodland Hills. It's a treatment program for kids coming out of juvenile court. He says throwing a kid in an adult prison is a quick and easy fix to keep the scary kids off the street. "You tell me that's going to be some kind of a cure? It'll keep the child off the street, but you will eventually have to deal with that person."
South Dakota receives federal money for Jensen and other juveniles housed in the adult prison. South Dakota legislators voted this session to send juveniles to death row.
Sherilyn Jensen, Paul's mother, agrees. She says
the judge passed the harshest sentence possible because Paul Jensen showed no remorse. Jensen was tried as an adult because in South Dakota there is only one option for teenage murderers.
Dean Jensen was convicted of first degree murder at the age of 14. He was one of the first teenagers sentenced as an adult. Jensen shot a Pierre cab driver three times after robbing him of $30. He was sentenced shortly after his 15th birthday.

Idaho developed a separate juvenile department of corrections and is allocating money to the counties to open detention and counseling facilities. The restorative justice approach makes communities and families more responsible for troubled teens. Chambers says the approach is an effective way to reach out to kids. "It's training people how Nike Air Total Max Uptempo 97 to meaningfully and fearlessly involve themselves with scary kids," he says. "We're seeing it's too easy to build walls, because these kids scare us. It's a little more difficult to get in the cell, take the handcuffs off and say, 'Okay, talk to me about why you do what you do.' A little more difficult to get past this generation's vibrato, but underneath, they're still kids."
What works for troubled teens is to balance a need for accountability while keeping people and communities safe.
