WASHINGTON - The head of the union representing employees at the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention has called for the resignation of OJJDP Administrator Robert L. Listenbee Jr., saying the agency has "spiraled out of control" and morale has plummeted under his leadership.
"I just don't see how Mr. Listenbee can legitimately lead OJJDP forward through the crisis that his employees are currently facing," said Marilyn Moses, president of Local 2830 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).
...
Juvenile justice advocates as well as OJJDP staffers had hailed President Barack Obama's appointment of Listenbee in early 2013, saying the longtime Philadelphia juvenile defense attorney and juvenile justice reformer would improve morale and bring direction to the agency.
Before Listenbee took over in March 2013, the agency had been beset by low morale and a lack of effective leadership, employees said.
...
"They had high hopes for [Listenbee] when he came on board," Moses said, "now they have been bitterly disappointed."
...
In the letter, Moses urged Mason to bring in an outside management consultant to review the union's findings and recommend "whether Mr. Listenbee's resignation would be in the best interest of the organization" or if the consultant could "craft a strength-based path forward."
...
They communicated to me over and over again that they do not feel that Listenbee trusts them and does not call upon them for input, and that they feel that they're not trusted to do their jobs, not allowed to do their jobs.
...
Listenbee came to the agency with a reputation as an effective juvenile justice reformer.
The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation's Models for Change juvenile justice reform initiative honored him in 2011 with a Champion for Change award for his leadership in reforming the juvenile justice system in Pennsylvania.
Listenbee, the first African-American to head OJJDP, earned a bachelor's degree from Harvard University and a law degree from the University of California at Berkeley.
He served for 27 years as a trial lawyer with the Defender Association of Philadelphia, including 16 years as chief of the association's juvenile unit. He also co-chaired the Attorney General's National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence, which issued its final report in December 2012.

Robert Listenbee Robert L. Listenbee serves as the Administrator of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). He was appointed to the position by President Barack Obama in February 2013, and was sworn in to the position on March 25, 2013. Before his appointment to OJJDP, Mr. Listenbee was Chief of the Juvenile Unit of the Defender Association of Philadelphia for 16 years and was a trial lawyer with the association for 27 years. In this capacity, he created a specialized unit to deal with juvenile sexual assault cases and was instrumental in developing three specialty court programs that divert youth out of the juvenile justice system and reduce their risk of residential placement. Mr. Listenbee also worked with juvenile defenders across Pennsylvania to create the Juvenile Defender Association of Pennsylvania, the first organization in the Commonwealth to create a community of juvenile defenders to focus on the interests of juvenile practitioners. He was also the only juvenile defense attorney selected to be part of the Pennsylvania Interbranch Commission on Juvenile Justice, which was established in response to the "kids for cash" scandal in the juvenile courts of Luzerne County. In 2010, the Commission issued a report recommending major reforms to the statewide system to ensure that a similar injustice did not occur again. Mr. Listenbee was also a member of the Pennsylvania Interbranch Commission on Gender, Racial and Ethnic Fairness. As a member of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Committee of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, Mr. Listenbee helped advise Pennsylvania's governor on juvenile justice policy. While a member of the Commission, he served on the Disproportionate Minority Contact Subcommittee and advocated for the rights of juveniles and for improvements to juvenile indigent defense. Mr. Listenbee was also actively involved in the MacArthur Foundation's Models for Change Initiative in Pennsylvania. His work on this initiative included serving in both the Juvenile Indigent Defense and Disproportionate Minority Contact Networks. In 2011, he was honored by the Foundation as a Champion for Change in juvenile justice reform for his leadership in reforming the juvenile justice system in Pennsylvania. He has contributed his expertise on policy committees of the National Legal Aid & Defender Association and the National Juvenile Defender Center. He also served on the advisory board of the National Center for Juvenile Justice.
Mr. Listenbee played a central role in the Attorney General's Defending Childhood Initiative. As co-chair of the National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence, he was instrumental in the development of recommendations for launching a coordinated national response to address children's exposure to violence. He also served as a member of the Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice, which advises the President and Congress on juvenile justice policy. The committee is administered by OJJDP.
Mr. Listenbee received his bachelor's degree from Harvard University and his law degree from the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley.
