Should juveniles convicted of murder be eligible for parole?

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The state attorney general is pledging to challenge court rulings that could mean parole for some juveniles.

A federal judge recently ordered the state to start the parole review process for more than 300 inmates.

This, after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down mandatory life sentences for inmates who committed murder before turning 18.

Bill Schuette says the ruling should not apply to anyone sentenced before the supreme court decision.

TV5 wants to know what you think. Do you think people under 18 who are convicted of murder should be eligible for parole?
