In 2001 at age 14, Kenneth Young was arrested for aiding his mother's drug dealer in a series of armed robberies. He was told she would be killed if he didn't help settle her debts. No one was harmed during the robberies. Subsequently, Kenneth was sentenced to FOUR CONSECUTIVE LIFE SENTENCES. In 2010, the US Supreme Court did away with Life Without Parole for Juveniles in non-homicide cases. Kenneth was re-sentenced to 30 years in prison. He is currently 29 years old and won't be eligible for parole until he is in his 40's.
