After spending more than 20 years in adult prisons, two inmates sought the legal services of student attorneys with the Post-Conviction Justice Project, which co-sponsored California’s 2014 Fair Sentencing for Youth Act and several subsequent juvenile justice bills.

Thanks to the PCJP, both were given a second chance – the courts resentenced them to life sentences with the possibility of parole and they were released through the parole process this past year.
