5 Oregonians serving life without parole for juvenile crimes

Vermont law already prohibits juvenile life without parole

Some 94 inmates are serving life without parole for murders committed while they were younger than 18, according to a review of data by the state Department of Corrections.

No juvenile offender has ever been sentenced to life without parole in NY, but civil liberties groups have argued that denying parole to offenders with long sentences can amount to the same thing.

In 2014, the South Carolina Supreme Court ruled that sentences of life without parole were unconstitutional for juveniles, ordering that such inmates could request resentencing. Lawmakers say children are constitutionally different from adults and those differences must be considered when children are sentenced for adult crimes. Both were initially sentenced to mandatory life without parole.

The bill was introduced after a state Supreme Court ruling in January ordered resentencings for two men convicted of serious crimes they committed as juveniles.

Kyrie Irving Trade: Clippers made huge offer to Cleveland Cavaliers
Kyrie Irving is going to be the hot topic of the National Basketball Association offseason until this recent madness settles. Kyrie Irving is still a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers despite his reported desire to leave the team and play elsewhere.

The Missouri Supreme Court.

Wisconsin has no mandatory life sentence without parole for juveniles. About three dozen offenders would be eligible for hearings over the next three years, though there's no guarantee they'd be paroled.

However, corrections officials say there are no known inmates facing life terms without parole for juvenile offenses. The youngest at the time of his crime was Jason Bryant, who was 14 when he and five others kidnapped the Lillelid family from a rest stop in eastern Tennessee and killed the mother, father and their 6-year-old daughter and wounded the couple's 2-year-old son. If it's not, the trial court must vacate his conviction and instead find him guilty of second-degree murder, which is punishable either by 10 to 30 years or up to life in prison. The change covers those who've served 20 years for their crimes, but weren't convicted of more that one homicide.

There is at least one case in Tennessee courts that challenges the 51-year sentence.
