Default SB239 - Parole for Juvenile Lifers

I just wanted to let everyone know that Senator Marsden has introduced SB239 into the Virginia Senate. The bill would allow any Juvenile that was sentenced to life in Virginia to apply for parole after serving 25 years of that sentence. The bill goes hand in hand with another bill that instructs judges to consider the Graham criteria prior to sentencing a juvenile to life without parole. SB239 will close the backdoor on all habeas cases related to Miller.

If you live in Virginia, please contact your state legislators and ask them to support SB239. Virginia's Commonwealth's Attorneys already support it and so does the Attorney General. But without your support, the bill will fail in committee, just as it did last year.

If you want to see real change in the juvenile justice system in Virginia, you need to speak out now.

Thanks,
Thorfin
