This Nov. 25, 2008 photo released by the Michigan Department of Corrections shows inmate Henry Hill. Hill has spent the last 32 years serving a mandatory life sentence for his connection to a killing at a park in Saginaw County when he was 16. Hill had a gun, but was never accused of firing the fatal shot. The Supreme Court ruling that banned states from imposing mandatory life sentences on teenagers convicted of murder offers an unexpected chance at freedom to thousands of inmates who had no opportunity to seek release _ and virtually no hope that their prospects would change.
