2013 Senate Bill 318: Repeal mandatory life sentences for minors (Senate Roll Call 451)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 36 to 0 in the Senate on October 24, 2013, to repeal Michigan’s mandatory life sentence with no chance of parole for certain very serious crimes committed by minors, and replace it with a system in which prosecutors could request a genuine lifetime sentence. If this request was not made or denied, a judge would have to impose a minimum sentence of between 25 and 40 years, and a maximum of at least 60 years. These provisions would only apply prospectively, to cases still open as of the U.S. Supreme Court's Miller v Alabama decision in June, 2012.
