Leggett Proposes Curfew for Underage Youth

County Executive Ike Leggett has proposed establishing a curfew for youth under 18 years old in Montgomery County.

In his transmittal memo to the County Council, Leggett noted that he was sending, for introduction, a bill “… intended to address issues relating to increased gang activity, violence, and crime involving minors in the County. It imposes a curfew from Midnight to 5 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday and from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. on the remaining days of the week.”

The Executive’s bill is similar to curfew laws in existence in Prince George’s County and the District of Columbia.
