Kavanaugh Has Plenty To Say In DC Sniper Arguments

RJ Vogt, Law 360 •

Marsha Levick, a co-founder of Juvenile Law Center who attended the arguments, said that while she’s never been a victim of crime herself, she can still appreciate the pain that surviving family members go through when a resentencing hearing drags up traumatic memories.

“But can we prevent them having to do that by simply locking people up for the rest of their lives?” she added. “If the Constitution requires this parole eligibility for the vast majority of young offenders ... then we need to think about a better way we can help victims through this process.”
