Appeals court allows life sentences for juveniles
ATLANTA -- A federal appeals court on Wednesday held that juveniles convicted of murder can be sentenced to life in prison without parole, seeking to settle a lingering debate over how the courts punish minors who commit serious offenses.
The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled that juveniles cannot be sentenced to death and that they also can't be sentenced to life in prison without parole for rape and other non-homicide offenses. The ruling by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday, though, upheld life sentences for juveniles convicted of murder.

Most prisoners listed on PrisonerPal.com have done years in prison without a pen pal, visits, or phone calls to the outside world, and they are desperately hoping this prison pen pal site will give them a chance to form a lasting friendship with someone willing to take the time to write a letter or two a week to let them know they have not been forgotten by the world they left behind.
Moreover, a prisoner's contact with the outside world is a positive factor, especially if that contact is with someone willing to encourage the male or female prisoner to assess their past life and bring about the change necessary for him or her to lead a productive existence when released. Why should you care? While some of the prison pen pals on this site are serving life sentences, or have been sentenced to die by gas or lethal injection, most will someday be released from prison to again live among us. Those prisoners may end up being your neighbor or fellow employee. PrisonerPal.com
