Amy's Story

Amy Breihan is assistant attorney at the MacArthur Justice Center. In this role, she works primarily with juvenile life without parole (JLWOP) clients who have served at least 25 years of their sentences. These individuals are eligible for re-sentencing, according to two supreme court decisions, Miller v. Alabama in 2012, which made LWOP sentences unconstitutional for juveniles and Montgomery v. Louisiana in 2016, which made Miller retroactive to past cases (for more info, click here).
