Don’t Misunderstand the Juvenile Parole Case

We at noticed a disturbing trend in the news reports on the recent Supreme Court case dealing with juveniles sentenced to life without parole.

The news reports consistently say "Supreme Court Strike Down Life Without Parole for Juveniles". That is incorrect.

What the Supreme Court actually did was strike down mandatory life without parole. The court did not say that juveniles couldn't be sentenced to life without parole just that it couldn't be an automatic sentence.
