Sofia Nelson Writes About Michigan ‘Juvenile Lifers’

Former Fellow Sofia Nelson (’13) wrote an article for the Michigan Bar Journal regarding recent legal developments impacting juveniles sentenced to life in prison in Michigan (“Justice Delayed: What’s Next for Michigan’s Juvenile Lifers?” January 2019). “Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Montgomery v Louisiana, Michigan prosecutors are currently reseeking life-without-parole sentences in more than 200 juvenile lifer cases — the largest number of any state,” Sofia wrote.
