In this March 11, 2012 photo provided by the California Department of Corrections is Sara Kruzan. Kruzan was a teenage prostitute in 1994 when she shot and killed her 33-year-old pimp in the honeymoon suite of the Dynasty Suites Motel in Riverside. The next year, she was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole. Since then, her case has become a cause celebre for victims of spousal abuse and activists who believe too many juvenile criminals are receiving unduly harsh adult sentences.
