DESCRIPTION:
(from A&E's press release, February 2020) A&E Network has greenlit a second season of the poignant documentary series "Kids Behind Bars: Life or Parole" which tells the stories of convicted juvenile offenders who received mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole. Due to a recent United States Supreme Court ruling that such sentences for minors are unconstitutional, these inmates can now petition the court for a new sentencing hearing. The powerful second season will chronicle eight convicted offenders fighting for a second chance while also giving voice to the families of their victims who must grapple with the possibility that they could soon be released. The series posits the question, can juveniles who committed murder ever truly be rehabilitated? In each episode, viewers will hear testimony from leading psychologists, law enforcement, and legal experts as well as first-person interviews with the inmates themselves and the loved ones of their victims to understand the full scope of the crimes before the judge makes the final verdict. The new season will premiere this Fall.
