Assemblyman Jim Nielsen expressing strong opposition to Senate Bill 9, which passed the Assembly Floor on a minimum party-line vote.
SB 9 would allow inmates, who were juveniles when they committed a special circumstances crime that would have resulted in the death penalty sentence for an adult; instead they were sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, to petition the court for resentencing, making them eligible for parole.
