Roger Weisberg's investigative documentary explores the results of a stern policy on juvenile crime. A policy which states that if you're old enough to commit a crime, then you're old enough to do the time seems contrary to the establishment of juvenile courts in the first place, which were designed to help young people reform. Old Enough To Do Time concludes that while locking away teen offenders does offer short term relief, in the long run, society misses the chance to help reform these children.
