The Act provides measures and procedures to enhance school safety and changes the penalty provisions relating to the crimes of aggravated assault and aggravated battery when these crimes are committed against a student or teacher or other school personnel within a school safety zone. The Act also provides that juvenile offenders who commit certain violent felonies including murder, voluntary manslaughter, rape, aggravated sodomy, aggravated child molestation, aggravated sexual battery, and armed robbery committed with a firearm shall be tried as adults in the superior court. Upon conviction, these juvenile offenders will be sentenced directly to the custody of the Department of Corrections for placement in designated youth confinement units operated by the Department of Corrections.
