Life sentence for a crime not involving murder for a juvenile? What were the crimes I would love to know? If its not rape or murder then no I don't think a life sentence is right at all. As for the 2000 serving for murder yes for sure. Once you kill someone you should be in jail for life, unless of course it was self defense.

Crimes commited by everyone-robbery, assalt, etc. I do not think a 13 or 14 year old should be given a life sentence. This is such a young age, it is throwing a life away when there is a good possibility of change.
