life without parole for 'felony murder'

 

A first-of-its-kind court case in Pennsylvania

is asking a big question:

How long do people need to stay in prison

before they get a second chance?

 

More than 1,000 people

are serving life without parole in Pennsylvania,

even though they never intended to kill anyone.

 

Seventy percent of those people are Black.
