Abstract:

This paper explores the life course of a group of offenders who received life sentences for homicide crimes they committed as 13, 14, and 15 year olds, and who are now middle-aged adults. The plight of these offenders has recently been the subject of considerable public debate, in part because 1) the number of juveniles subject to life in prison has increased dramatically in the last few decades; 2) U.S. policy in applying life sentences to early adolescents has received considerable adverse publicity, and may soon be the subject of Supreme Court review; and 3) the incapacitative and retributive purposes of a life sentence seem to be dramatically at odds with what we know about both adolescent culpability and young people’s rehabilitative potential. Our purpose in this paper is to explore youths’ adaptations to confinement. We are especially interested in learning how successful they were in navigating adolescence, and in identifying factors that affected their ability to achieve the developmental milestones associated with a healthy transition from adolescence to adult life. We consider the implications of our findings for prison management policies and practices, and for prisoner re-entry programs.
