Here's a live look thank you for joining us this morning.

I'm john rawlings.

And i'm jessica hartman we hope your day is off to young people.

Just last month?

The group presented a proposal for an earlier curfew for juveniles as a possible solution?

But they say that process is taking longer than expected.

The law currently holds a parent responsible for their kids if they are caught between one and five in the morning.

Megan diventi digs deeper into this story and reports the latest.

Since he presented a proposal in august?my brother's keeper founder tim collie?has been working to get an earlier curfew for young people on the books in the city.

"we've set the kids up for failure with this curfew to begin with."

He say?

Instead of 1 in the mornin?

He wants to see the city of owensboro change the curfew to 11 pm.

"basically you're not doing anything but waiting for something to happen.

They are not working at the time.

Not at activities.

They are just hanging out."

But since presenting the proposal to city officials last month?he says the decision is taking longer than he expected.

"it's at a standstill.

It's like nobody wants to make the first move."

"owensboro police say within the last five years they have written 27 curfew violations, but only two were found guilty.

And while four are still pending, the remaining 21 were dismissed."

Daviess county attorney claud porter says there's a reason so many of these cases are dismissed.

Parents can file something called "beyond control petitions"?

Which tells the court the child is beyond a parent's control?

Which in turn negates the curfew violation.

He does not believe the curfew will affect a lot of change.

"we would like to see parents taking control of their kids.

Making sure that they are where they are supposed to be, watching them, monitoring them."

"parents they haven't cited very many kids just for being past the time they were supposed to which tells me that most parents are keeping their kids in."

For collie?

He questions who will ultimately take responsibility for the proble?

"i really believe the curfew will work but it's going to take the parents and the city officials to come together to come up with a solution for this becasue right now we do have the kids set up for failure with the current situation where the curfew is at 1 am in the morning."
