Extinguishing All Hope: Life-without-Parole for Juveniles
Butler, Frank
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v49 n4 p273-292 2010
Sentencing juveniles to life-without-parole (JLWOP) is a practice fraught with ethical dilemmas. Through in-depth interviews with 11 men living sentences of JLWOP, their narratives of their backgrounds and experiences as juveniles were studied. Common themes were identified, and 3 general categories of cases emerged from the narratives. Ethical and social policy issues surrounding this currently most extreme punishment for minors are discussed. (Contains 5 notes.)
