No More “LIFE” in Jail for Juveniles Without Offering Parole
The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that states can no longer impose life sentences upon juveniles without offering the possibility of parole. The thinking is that teens and pre-teens under 18 are too young to have really developed mentally and fully grasp what they’ve done…especially in the cases of murder. Proponents of the new law feel that juveniles should have a chance to prove they’ve changed their lives and that a life sentence for anyone under 18 is unfair and unconstitutional.
