Do you know of any young people in your community or who are linked to you who are now serving a prison sentence? The deplorable plight of these youngsters might make you cry, especially when you realize there is nothing you can do to assist.
Depending on the severity of the offense, even a junior of less than ten years might be sentenced to life in prison under the laws of the land.
In today's essay, we'll look at several children who were handed life sentences at a young age, and the most of them have spent their whole lives in prison, never knowing the true meaning of freedom.
