Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/30/2014 - 01:13
By Ted Siefer MANCHESTER N.H. (Reuters) - New Hampshire's highest court has ruled that four men serving life in prison for murders committed when they were teenagers have the right to new sentencing hearings because of a 2012 U.S. In a ruling on Friday, the New Hampshire Supreme Court held that the 2012 decision, Miller v. Alabama, applied retroactively to the four men, who were all 17 when they were found guilty of murder in separate cases between 1993 and 2007. New Hampshire joins Florida, Mississippi, Iowa, Massachusetts and several other states where high courts have determined that the Miller v. Alabama ruling is retroactive. Courts in other states, including Alabama, where the case originated, have denied requests for new sentencing hearings for prisoners convicted when they were juveniles.
