JLWOP in a Discretionary System

As noted earlier today and last November, a California Court of Appeal decided that Miller v. Alabama does impact juvenile life-without-parole sentencing in California, even though the sentence is discretionary, and the US Supreme Court has sent two cases back for reconsideration.

Last Thursday, the California Supreme Court granted review of that Court of Appeal decision.  The case is People v. Moffett, S206771.
