Bill to require parole hearings for teen killers fails to pass
Posted on 6/7/2016 5:12:00 PM.

The bill was a reaction to a Supreme Court ruling that says convicted minors cannot be sentenced to life without the chance for parole. Metairie Senator Danny Martiny says it’s unfortunate they couldn’t pass this measure.
