Jacksonville Juvenile Criminal Attorney: Representing Juveniles Charged with Life Felonies

Only days before the landmark decision in the Jacksonville Juvenile case of Graham v. Florida, Jacksonville judge, Elizabeth Senterfitt, sentenced juvenile Daryl Thomas to life in prison without the possibility of parole for armed robbery, a non-homicide felony. In Graham, the United States Supreme Court ruled that juveniles charged with non-homicide felonies cannot be sentence to life without parole. Therefore, Thomas’ case was sent back to Judge Senterfitt to resentence him in compliance with the ruling in Graham. She sentenced him to fifty years in Florida State Prison. The Jacksonville Juvenile Criminal Case will be appealed (Jacksonville.com).
