On June 25, 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court in Miller v. Alabama, ruled that imposing mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole on juveniles violates the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. In the wake of the decision, states with mandatory sentencing schemes grapple with addressing the decision with appropriate actions.
