Christina Troll started this petition to Senator Lindsey Graham and

Many of the children who are tried and sentenced as adults are affected by the ruling for the rest of their lives. The longest sentence a juveniles can receive is life in prison. While this is rare, it is much more common for a juvenile to be sentenced to 20-30 years in prison. This causes the children to be much more likely to be raped, commit suicide, and commit other crimes upon release. In order for the juveniles to not incur the horrid consequences of their sentences, they need to be sentenced as juveniles. Petition the members of Congress to make the change regarding the children who are being robbed of their childhoods.
