RE-SENTENCING BOBBY GENE GRIFFIN IN BERRIEN COUNTY’S OLDEST “JUVENILE LIFER” CASE

This Jan. 19, 2017 photo released by the Michigan Department of Corrections shows Bobby Gene Griffin, who was sentenced to life in prison without parole nearly 50 years ago as a teenager may soon be released. The Herald-Palladium reported that at 17-years-old Griffin was handed Michigan’s then-automatic life without parole sentence for the 1967 murder of Minnie Peaples. The law has since changed, saying juveniles convicted of murder won’t receive mandatory life sentences. (Michigan Department of Corrections via AP)
