Juvenile offenders; sentencing; geriatric parole. Provides that for any juvenile felony a circuit court may consider a juvenile's diminished culpability and heightened capacity for change in determining the particular sentence to be imposed. The bill also provides that the Parole Board may consider a petitioner's demonstrated maturity and rehabilitation and the lesser culpability of juvenile offenders in reviewing a petition for geriatric release when submitted by a person serving a sentence imposed on a juvenile for an offense that would be a crime if committed by an adult.
