Juvenile detention & imprisonment-Inside Out-11-12-2012

The United States incarcerates more of its youth population than any other country in the world.

Juveniles are one of the most vulnerable groups in America and serious sentences for youths often have lasting impacts that go well beyond time spend behind bars.

According to the Equal Justice Initiative, across the United States there are over 2200 juvenile serving life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Worse, the EJI, found that children as young as 13 have been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The Campaign for Youth Justice also notes a trend to try youthful offenders as adults. The CFYJ found out that less than 5% of youths are arrested for murder, rape, robbery and aggregated assault and yet the number of youths in adult's prison are rising.
