Bill allowing parole for young offenders advances in Massachusetts

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 23:54
By Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - Massachusetts legislators passed a bill that would grant people convicted of first-degree murder while under age 18 a chance at parole after serving at least 20 years of their sentence. The bill, which was approved late Tuesday, comes after rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court and Massachusetts' highest court that found imposing life sentences without parole on juvenile offenders to be unconstitutional. Governor Deval Patrick, a Democrat, has not indicated if he will sign it. Supporters of the Senate bill noted it does not guarantee parole to juvenile offenders but offers them the chance to plead their cases before a board.
