Life Without Parole: Why it Must End for Youth

The Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth (CFSY) with various partners has recently produced a very effective infographic that they introduce with the following text:

In light of the June 25, 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Miller v. Alabama that mandatory Life Without Parole sentences for juveniles violates the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment, there is a timely opportunity to help define revised state legislation around this issue. The following videos and facts have been compiled in coordination with a coalition of NGOs working on the frontlines of this issue and are intended to help make change for state-by-state legislation.
