State lawmakers are tackling new law that would restrict the number of teens that can go to jail. Pennsylvania has more juvenilles in prison for life then any other state-- 480-- out of 2500 in the nation. Lawmakers already held hearings this summer and the State Supreme court plans legal arguments September 12th on how long kids can be incarcerated, even for murder. One side says children should never spend a lifetime in prison, no matter what the crime is the other side says murder is murder, no matter the age.
