Advocates push to end life without parole for juveniles in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, advocates are pushing to end the practice of giving life sentences to juveniles, something many other states have already accomplished. A group of them gathered in the capitol Wednesday to endorse a bipartisan bill, authored by Rep. David Bowen (D-Milwaukee), to do just that.

At a press conference Wednesday to highlight the bill, Bowen stressed the importance of ensuring “that we are providing services and changes in policy to advocate for these same young people, who are now adults.”
