Bill Schuette believes a judge’s recent opinion on no-parole sentences for juveniles covers only five prisoners and is not a sweeping decision affecting other inmates.

Michigan inmates serving mandatory life sentences without parole for crimes they committed as minors may have a chance to pursue freedom rather than spend the rest of their lives behind bars.
The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit challenging a Michigan law that bars any chance at parole for juveniles convicted of certain murders.
