LANSING (AP) – The Michigan Attorney General says a U.S. Supreme Court decision should not apply to inmates already serving no-parole sentences for murders they committed when they were teens. Bill Schuette’s staff has filed a brief in the Michigan appeals court in the case of Raymond Carp of St. Clair County.

Carp was 15 when he brutally murdered a woman in 2006.

The Attorney General’s effort comes after the High Court struck down mandatory no-parole sentences for juveniles. Schuette says the law applies to young people who are convicted in the future but should not apply to those already behind bars.
