The United States is one of the only countries in the 

world that allows children under 18 to be sentenced 

to life without parole. Human Rights Watch and 

Amnesty International report that more than 2,000 

inmates are currently serving life without parole in the 

United States for crimes committed when they were 

juveniles; in the rest of the world, there are only 12

juveniles serving the same sentence, according to

figures reported to the United Nations' Convention on

the Rights of the Child. In When Kids Get Life,

FRONTLINE producer Ofra Bikel (The O.J. Verdict,

Innocence Lost) travels to Colorado to profile five 

individuals sentenced to life without parole as 

juveniles. See video
