Juvenile sentencing standards still vague

You would think that once the Supreme Court found Florida was illegally sentencing juveniles to life without parole for non-murder crimes, there would be some changes. However, this is not the case.

Makes you wonder just what is the function of the governor and State’s Attorney or even the Department of Justice if the legislature refuses to act legally: Juvenile sentencing still tricky

We are talking of kids that have yet to reach maturity ending up doing life sentences for other than murder. The one thing it does is keep prisons full and provide employment opportunities with benifits for the rural pool.

It just goes to show that where there is no money in legislation there is no legislation.
