‘Life Without Parole: Juvenile Justice’ wins Associate Press Award for Best College Documentary

Here’s an accolade long forgotten but recently rediscovered. I was part of a team that worked on a radio-documentary series analyzing whether juveniles should be tried like adults in the court of law. For ‘Life Without Parole: Juvenile Justice?’ I reported on an advocate who was in favor of the sentence for juvenile offenders.  Her motivation stemmed from the murder and rape of her five-year-old nephew by a 14-year-old boy, back in 1983.
