LINCOLN — State senators hoping to fix Nebraska's juvenile justice system will try to persuade their colleagues to buy the former Uta Halee Girls Village in Omaha.
Sen. Brad Ashford of Omaha said Wednesday he and other proponents of juvenile justice reform will seek an appropriation to buy the $2 million property, which closed as a privately run residential treatment center in late 2011.
