Cyntoia Brown & the "51-To-Life" Project: Final Report

Over the past two months, I've been examining juvenile sentencing laws across the country to test the thesis that Tennessee has the harshest juvenile homicide sentencing law in the country. After reviewing the laws in each state, that thesis has been confirmed. Tennessee indeed has the harshest juvenile homicide sentencing laws in the country by a good margin. You can download the report here: Download Juvenile Sentencing

The full report is also in this post before the fold:

Mr. Miller- After listening to your podcast I have a question that involves the 15 year old boy accused of the school shooting last week in Kentucky. I heard that day that they planned on trying him as an adult. So does this make all the work that people are doing on juvenile sentencing a mute point? It seems to me that this should be part of that law-you are the age that you are-period.

Free this innocent girl. Please we are asking for clemency for her.
