Still Life … The Sentencing Project

“More than 202,000 men and women are now serving dead-end sentences in U.S. prisons, according to an analysis released Wednesday by The Sentencing Project. The report, Still Life: America’s Increasing Use of Life and Long-Term Sentences, says one in seven prisoners is locked up under three sentences that offer only the faintest hope of parole: life in prison, life without parole, or a de facto life term of 50 years or more.” (TheCrimeReport 02.03.2017)
