Here is Matthew with Robert Listenbee, Jr., at the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges’ National Conference on Juvenile Justice in Las Vegas.  Listenbee, Administrator of the DOJ’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, introduced Matthew and encouraged the group to work harder to bring justice for Native children and youth.  Matthew is the first Native plenary speaker that NCJFCJ has had at one of its national conference!  His presentation was “The Crisis in American Indian Juvenile Justice.”

    Very nice Fletcher! Being a judge for the few years opens the eyes and ears to the seriousness of juveniles in the criminal system. Glad you’re out there addressing & working on positive changes, the right kind of changes.
