YSRP & ACCR on NITA Webcast on Juvenile Life Without Parole
On June 13, 2017, YSRP Co-Director Joanna Visser Adjoian, and our partner organization, the Atlantic Center for Capital Representation (ACCR)’s Deputy Director, Dana Cook, filmed a webinar on “Juvenile Life Without Parole – Making the Case for Release,” at the request of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA). The session provides a comprehensive overview of how to conduct a complete mitigation investigation in juvenile life without parole cases in preparation for a resentencing hearing. The webcast covers the nuts and bolts of the investigation, as well as a detailed overview of another critical component of this process: developing a reentry plan to support a juvenile lifer’s reentry to the community.
