In 2008 Human Rights Watch published the report"When I Die, They'll Send Me Home" and research on the sentencing of youth offenders to life without parole in California. It painted a detailed picture of people serving life without parole for crimes committed as youth. Since that report, several key factors have changed.
California law recognizes the need to protect and provide special opportunities to young adults. Among other things, state law extends foster care services to age 21; sets Division of Juvenile Justice jurisdiction at age 23; and the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation provides special opportunities and protections for young adults in prison up to age 25.
