Juvenile LIFER deserve a "chance"


Excerpt.........please read full article

The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling banning mandatory life sentences with no parole for youthful offenders was the right decision. Such a sentence for each young offender ought to be the result of a careful and thoughtful examination of his or her circumstances by the sentencing judge — rather than the rote application of a sentencing formula. The Michigan Legislature must revise the law to take account of the High Court’s ruling.
