What about juveniles getting life without parole?
18 years in Corrections. Deterrence is beginning to work now? I do not see it. US still has one of the highest incarceration rates in the world based on 'deterrence' and its not working. Cognitive-behaviour programs work and if the juvenile offender is given a sentence where he can get suitable programming it is possible to reduce recidivism and habilitate or rehabilitate the offender. We can do nothing for the victim of record but we can do a lot for minimizing any future victims.
