Illinois Lawmakers Debate What's Next For Juveniles Facing Life Sentences

Even though the Supreme Court has already ruled the practice unconstitutional, Illinois lawmakers are still discussing what to do with juveniles who have been sentenced to life without parole. 


The high court found that because their brain chemistry is still developing, it’s cruel and unusual to make teens pay for the rest of their lives for crimes they committed as juveniles. 


But Chicago Public Radio reports that lawmakers are concerned about the effect on victims and their families if sentencing is reopened in those cases.
