The Florida Independent notes that "despite a U.S. Supreme Court decision that ruled that Florida’s practice of sentencing juveniles to life for nonmurder crimes is unconstitutional, Florida’s many juvenile prisoners have not seen much mercy." Instead "several juveniles have been re-sentenced to terms that still amount to life sentences." According to the Lakeland Ledger, "experts" report that there are "at least 116 prisoners" in such situations. On the other hand, the Governor has an excellent record when it comes to pardoning unrepentant, dead, dope headed "rock" stars. See story here.
