PHILADELPHIA DISTRICT ATTORNEY DECLARES LIFE-WITHOUT-PAROLE SENTENCES INAPPROPRIATE FOR JUVENILES

"It's my goal to give all of these individuals some light at the end of the tunnel," [Seth Williams] told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "As long as I'm the D.A., we will not be asking for cases going forward for life without the possibility of parole for people under the age of 18 because of the same exact reasons articulated by the Supreme Court in Miller."
