Children are different, U.S. Supreme Court Rules
The U.S. Supreme Court this week said that children are different than adults.
Previously some children who commited non-homicide crimes could be subjected to cruel & unusual punishment by being sentenced to life in prison with never any hope of parole, which has been happening here in Florida.
Now the court has looked at those situations and concluded that children shouldn’t be considered the same as adults.
Congratulations to the Children in Prison project of Florida State University’s College of Law. And kudos to my hubby, Paolo G. Annino who directed the outstanding students, Chelsea Boehme Rice, Yale Olenick & Jessica Harmsen.
