Legislature passes new juvenile sentencing

Posted: 05/03/13 08:40

Lawmakers have passed a new sentencing range of 40 years to life for murders committed by a juvenile. The measure was introduced in the wake of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that declared mandatory life-without-parole sentences for juveniles unconstitutional. It also allows judges to consider mitigating factors in a case.
