Over the course of two
years, U.S. Program Senior Researcher Alison Parker traveled to
prisons throughout the United States, interviewing youth offenders
serving life without parole. In the following excerpts from those
interviews, youth offenders reflect on their crimes, their trials
in adult court, their experiences in adult prison, and their attempts
to come to grips with the fact that they will spend the rest of
their lives there.
