Until They Die A Natural Death: Youth Sentenced to Life Without Parole in Massachusetts

The new report of the Children's Law Center, entitled, Until They Die A Natural Death:Youth Sentenced to Life Without Parole in Massachusetts, was released today, September 30, 2009. It documents extensive current evidence relative to the impact mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole have on juveniles, and calls for legislative action to eliminate such sanctions. Our report is based on interviews of most of the 57 individuals serving the sentence for crimes that occurred before their eighteenth birthday, and reviews of court decisions, individual case files, court transcripts, scientific data, and media reports to present an argument for assessing and reforming the current law.
