Sentencing Children: The Bill

  • Aired: 08/09/2017
  • 05:36
  • Rating: NR
Under Tennessee law, a child can be tried in adult court, and if convicted of first-degree murder, can be sentenced to life in prison, or life with a possibility of parole after 51 years. State legislators think that law is too harsh and in 2016 a bipartisan team worked with lawyers and a judge to propose a new reform law.
