Today Senator Begich introduced SB114; Juvenile Offenders; Parole Eligibility.
A copy of the Bill language can be viewed here: http://www.akleg.gov/PDF/32/Bills/SB0114A.PDF.
This Bill, if passed, would allow juveniles tried as adults an opportunity for a discretionary parole review after serving the first 15 years of their sentencing. It does NOT guarantee parole, however it does allow the applicant a meaningful opportunity for review to gauge readiness for parole. If denied, the parole board may review the applicant again after two years.
I will post an update once the Bill is scheduled to be heard in committee.
