UNDATED (WHTC) -- The Michigan Senate approved legislation addressing the sentences of teens convicted of murder in response to a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision.  Senate Bills 318 and 319 were approved by a unanimous vote, bringing Michigan law and sentencing guidelines into compliance with a U.S. Supreme ruling.  The Michigan Court of Appeals followed the U.S. Supreme Court precedent, ruling that Teenage murderers who have exhausted all direct appeals are not entitled to re-sentencing hearings.  The Bills now go to the Michigan House for approval.
