WASHINGTON (AP) — Youths convicted of a violent crime in Washington would have basic criminal information about them released to the public under a bill passed by the D.C. Council.

The bill was passed Tuesday and now goes to Mayor Adrian Fenty.

Council members said the law would also allow for information to be more easily shared between police and youth social service agencies.

The bill’s passage follows several well-publicized cases in which juveniles with violent pasts allegedly committed new crimes.
