SCOTUS to Decide Whether Life without Parole Permissible for Juveniles Convicted of Homicide
The cases are Jackson v. Hobbs and Miller v. Alabama. About 18 months ago, the Supremes held that life with out parole was not permissible for juveniles in non-homicide cases, which I wrote about June 1 of last year. Hat tip to the blog Youth Today and the website LawyersUSA.
