Chandler v. Mississippi

Juvenile Law Center joined California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, Phillips Black, and others on an amicus brief filed in the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Joey Chandler, who was re-sentenced to life without parole for a crime he committed as a juvenile. The brief argued that Miller v. Alabama and Montgomery v. Louisiana establish a presumption against imposing life without parole sentences on juveniles and requires a finding that the juvenile is permanently incorrigible and incapable of reform.
