US court mulls life terms for teens

US Supreme Court considers whether teenagers can be jailed for life for their crimes.

The US Supreme Court is considering whether teenagers can be jailed for life for their crimes.

The question arose in cases involving two Florida men who are serving life prison sentences with no chance of parole, for crimes they committed as teenagers.

Their lawyers say sentencing juveniles to life in prison is unconstitutional, particularly if they never committed murder.
