Default How will Supreme Court decide on the LWOP?

Hi All,
I am not sure if this is already posted so if so my apologies....

On March 21st of this year, two important cases were heard by the Supreme Court that will affect the lives of countless juveniles and now adults who committed crimes/sentenced when under the age of 18. Your loved one can positively be affected and the new info. can be used for re-sentencing or possibility of parole. As far as I've been able to research there is no decision yet, but there will be one soon.


I feel like I am holding my breath!
Here are 2 links to useful info. if you are interested in hearing more about this. http://www.thenation.com/blog/166925...role-juveniles

Lots of luck!

you can always try your hand at Fantasy SCOTUS and make predictions.

It's an interesting way of looking at how people think various cases before SCOTUS will go. It's a bit gallows humor-ish, but it is a different way to look at things.
