Court orders parole board to consider offender's age at the time of the crime

Vermont law already prohibits juvenile life without parole

Lawmakers say children are constitutionally different from adults and those differences must be considered when children are sentenced for adult crimes.

After the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed mandatory life without parole for juvenile killers in 2012, the General Assembly revised Delaware's sentencing laws in 2013. To impose life without parole, a jury must unanimously agree that prosecutors have proven additional factors, such as torture of the victim.

Court records show OR still has five men serving true-life sentences for crimes committed as minors.

In Washington, a law that outlines the punishment for first-degree murder says that anyone under 18 who commits murder can't be sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. The most prominent is Thurston High School shooter Kip Kinkel. His attorneys are seeking a U.S. Supreme Court review.

Five years ago, the Supreme Court barred mandatory life-without-parole sentences for anyone younger than 18 convicted of murder.

Bryant has filed a petition challenging his life-without-parole sentence.

In other states, dozens of offenders have been resentenced and some paroled, but Tennessee so far is not offering resentencing to its 13 juvenile life-without-parole inmates. The other four will be resentenced by judges in the counties where the crimes occurred.

The proposal also would have allowed juveniles to be eligible for a shot at parole after serving 15 years when their crimes didn't result in the death of someone. His resentencing was carried out before the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled on the Ali case. The change covers those who've served 20 years for their crimes, but weren't convicted of more that one homicide. The court's majority said the U.S. Supreme Court ruling didn't address the consequences of multiple sentences.
