Recorder Article – Courts Seek Ruling on Long Prison Sentences for Juveniles

Below is a link to an article that appeared in The Recorder on June 10, 2011, on courts awaiting the state Supreme Court’s decision in People v. Caballero where a Second District panel upheld a 110-year sentence for a schizophrenic juvenile convicted of attempted murders after he went on a gang-related shooting rampage when he was 16.   The Pacific Juvenile Defender Center is preparing an amicus curiae brief in this case as are other national groups.
