No Juvenile Offender Should Face Life In Prison Without Even A Chance Of Parole Someday

We urge the state Senate to quickly pass HB 1064, which was passed in the state House last week.

The bill, sponsored in the House by Rep. Rita Mayfield, D-Waukegan, and Rep. Seth Lewis, R-Bartlett, would allow offenders who were under the age of 21 when sentenced to apply to the Prisoner Review Board for parole after serving 40 years.
