Children Who Kill

Available on 9Now
In this revelatory documentary, filmed as the US child justice system undergoes its biggest change in living memory, we'll meet America's child killers. From the 12 year old kid criminals who've just been sentenced to those who've already spent decades behind bars with little or no chance of release. Through poignant first-hand testimony we'll discover what it means to spend a life in jail. We will learn about the crimes, how it feels to know that you'll be behind bars for decades to come and what life is like for a child living in a maximum security prison. We will also follow the stories of the child-lifers, sentenced to life without parole the Supreme Court's ruling earlier this year, who are now actively seeking to have their sentences overturned.
