DESCRIPTION:
(from A&E's press release, March 2019) A&E Network's new, raw eight-part original docuseries KIDS BEHIND BARS: LIFE OR PAROLE tells the individual stories of eight previously convicted child offenders sentenced to mandatory life terms without parole who are now seeking resentencing on the heels of the recent 2012 Miller v. Alabama case which ruled mandatory life terms for juveniles was a violation of the 8th Amendment. While some may be resentenced to life, others could be immediately released or given a new sentence that makes them eligible for parole. The focus of the series will be split between the facts of these brutal crimes combined with new evidence that has come to light and the real-time updates regarding potential releases, parole hearings, and resentencing as they currently unfold as well as the painful and emotional impact on the victims' loved ones. Each episode will include exclusive interviews from the convicted offenders directly from prison. What happens when kids commit horrific crimes? This series tackles controversial questions from multiple perspectives including leading psychologists and experts in the field along with local media, law enforcement and those closest to these cases as they explore the dark complexity of the repercussions when kids kill and the painful lifelong effects for those involved on both sides.
