In this 2009 photo released by photographer Richard Ross, a male juvenile stands in a room at Harrison County Juvenile Detention Center in Biloxi, Miss. The stark images are part of a haunting exhibit, "Juvenile In Justice,’’ that creator Richard Ross hopes will bring changes in the way the nation deals with the approximately 70,000 youths held in detention or correctional facilities across the country on any given night _ many of them for offenses no more serious than skipping school.
