Kenneth Young committed armed robbery at 14. He's guilty. He's now facing life in prison. The United States is the only country in the world that sentences children to life without parole. For over a decade Kenneth believed he would die behind bars, until in 2010 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled life sentences for children who haven't killed illegal. Of the more than 2,500 children sentenced to life, many are now eligible for release. Kenneth Young is living proof of a child's remarkable capacity for change. In a state that favors retribution over rehabilitation, we witness this young man's struggle for a second chance. 15 TO LIFE is a story of redemption that begs the question, how should we treat children in the justice system?

What were you like at 15?

 In this outtake from the film 15 TO LIFE Kenneth's Story, lawyers Paolo Annino and Corinne Koeppen prepare for Kenneth Young's resentencing with one of their key witnesses, psychologist Randy Otto.
