At a media conference Wednesday, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal reaffirmed his support on the use of federal stimulus dollars in an effort to fix problems in the state’s juvenile justice system.

Long a proponent of putting children first and protecting young people, the Governor said that the data is crystal clear – investing in children is the best answer.

Freudenthal also said that investing state dollars is a matter of necessity, whether it’s for prosecuting perpetrators or treating victims or working to prevent abuse and neglect in the first place.
