The Supreme Court ruled this week that a mandatory life sentence without parole is unconstitutional for juveniles. See the subject of that decision, 14-year-old Evan Miller, and other offenders who are likely to be affected by the court’s ruling.

Some of the children´s vita here:

  • Evan Miller

     

     

     

    Evan Miller was a troubled youth who had been in and out of foster homes. At age of 14, Miller, along with another teen beat Cole Cannon, stole his baseball cards, set his home on fire and then left him to die. In 2006, Miller was sentenced to life in prison without parole, despite the mitigating circumstances of his difficult upbringing. Miller, who had drug problems and been diagnosed with personality disorders, had tried to commit suicide several times. His sister, Aubrey, described their youth as plagued by poverty, neglect, and abuse.  “There are a lot of people responsible for a 14-year-old committing murder,” said Aubrey, “It started when he was born…no one had taught him to think. We were not taught respect and honesty.” Clyde Stancil, The Decatur Daily / AP Photo

     

     

     

  • Trina Garnett

     

     

    Growing up, Trina Garnett was referred to as a “slow” child because she had a low IQ and could not read or write. Garnett lost her mother at an early age, and her father was a violent alcoholic. In August of 1976, she was arrested for setting fire to a house in which two teenage boys died. She originally was deemed unfit for trial, but eventually was tried as an adult. She also had been diagnosed with schizophrenia. Garnett was sentenced to two life terms plus. No source mentioned

     

     

     

     

  • Terrance Graham

    When Terrance Graham was 16, he pleaded guilty to attempted robbery of a restaurant in which his accomplice hit the manager with a pipe, and served one year in jail. Six months later, while on probation, Graham was again arrested for fleeing the scene of a home robbery while also armed. Although the Department of Corrections suggested a four-year prison sentence, a judge sentenced Graham to life in prison without parole stating, Photo: No source mentioned

    Charles Lewis, Jr.
  • When he was 13, Charles Lewis, Jr., took part in an attempted kidnapping of a Lansing woman that led to her killing. She was 19. Lewis was just a few days away from his 14th birthday. He was convicted of first-degree murder, given a delayed sentence, and sent to a juvenile detention center. He will learn the full extent of his punishment when he turns 21, but now because of the Supreme Court ruling he can’t be automatically sentenced to life without parole.
