The Iowa Coalition 4 Juvenile Justice has been successful in legislatively passing a law that juveniles under the age of 18 are not to be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. We have been successful in changing juvenile sentences. To date fourteen Iowa juveniles have been released by the Iowa Parole Board under the new law.
