Judicial Process and Law

posted in: Research Paper | 0

In our course reading on the aftermath of criminal trials, you learned about convictions, prison sentences, and appeals. After reading this chapter, watch the following video about appeals for juveniles sentenced to life in prison and answer the following question: https://www.pbs.org/video/second-chance-kids-ftook9/ (Links to an external site.)

Is it fair to treat adults and juveniles differently as it relates to the justice system? In other words, why should a 17 and 11 month-old individual receive a drastically different sentence than an 18 and 1-month old individual?

Please write two paragraphs on this
