UNDATED (WHTC) -- During a joint House-Senate Judiciary Committee meeting Tuesday took testimony on Representative Joe Haveman’s legislation reforming Michigan's mandatory juvenile life sentence law. The plan reflects a 2012  U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down mandated life sentences for first degree murder.  Haveman says the issue is complicated as well as heart-breaking and there should be a difference for the person who committed the crime and someone who was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.  The committee will take further testimony in the weeks ahead.
