Supreme Court Strikes Down Death Penalty for Juveniles
Supreme Court Strikes Down Death Penalty for Juveniles (washingtonpost.com): "The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the Constitution forbids the execution of killers who were under 18 when they committed their crimes, ending a practice used in Virginia and 18 other states.

The 5-4 decision throws out the death sentences of about 70 juvenile murderers and bars states from seeking to execute minors for future crimes."
