2006 10 20 Evan Miller escorted to court

In this Oct. 20, 2006 photo, Evan Miller, right, is escorted to the Lawrence County Courthouse in Moulton, Ala. A judge is set to decide the punishment for the Alabama man, sentenced to life in prison for a murder he committed at age 14, and whose case later led to a ban on mandatory life sentences for juveniles. The judge will decide Tuesday, April 27, 2021 if Evan Miller should be given an opportunity at parole one day or if he should die in prison because of a crime he committed as a teenager.

In reviewing his case, the U.S. Supreme Court banned mandatory life without parole sentences for juveniles — saying judges and juries should consider the special factors of youth — a decision that eventually led to inmates across the country getting a chance at release.

But Miller will not get that chance. A judge on Tuesday handed down a second life sentence without possibility of parole.
