The Florida Senate recently gave its stamp of approval to the Second Look Act, a measure that could result in 4,000+ juveniles that are currently incarcerated eligible to have their sentence evaluated. These reviews may end up with the juvenile(s) being released.
Also known as Senate Bill 1308, the Second Look Act would allow individuals convicted of crimes to apply for a sentencing review, provided the conviction happened before they were 25 years of age. Furthermore, those who were sentenced to life sentences for committing murder or conspiracy to kill will not be eligible.
The Second Look Act still has to clear a hurdle in the Senate Appropriations Committee before it will receive a chamber vote and be sent to the House. According to the source Washington Examiner article, the bill is likely to face resistance.
