Abstract:
In NC teenagers who commit murder receive a mandatory life sentence. However, in 2012 the US Supreme Court ruled in Miller v. Alabama that juveniles may no longer receive automatic life sentences. "Instead they must receive individualized sentencing hearings. The ruling did not abolish life without parole; it abolished mandatory life without parole." The NC Supreme Court will hear cases in the coming weeks "to determine whether trial judges must retroactively consider the sentences of juvenile offenders." Tucker discusses how the Court's ruling may affect past offenders.
