petition overview | letter "Juveniles Tried as adults?"Target:CONGRESS, AND STATE REPRESENATIVESSponsored by: F.A.C.C.EJI LAUNCHES NATIONAL CAMPAIGN CHALLENGING DEATH IN PRISON SENTENCES IMPOSED ON 13- AND 14-YEAR-OLD CHILDREN November 28, 2007 A new study by EJI has documented 73 cases where 13- and 14-year-old children in the United States have been tried as adults and sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. EJI believes that sentencing young children to imprisonment until death violates international law and the U.S. Constitution, and has taken on the cases of a dozen of these 13- and 14-year-olds to challenge their sentences. The misguided practice of sentencing young kids to die in prison and the traumatic stories of condemned children are documented in EJI%u2019s report, Cruel and Unusual: Sentencing 13- and 14-Year-Old Children to Die in Prison.
