Juveniles Tried as Adults

NPR's Phillip Davis reports on the case of 14-year-old Lionel Tate, who was sentenced to life in prison last month for the murder of a six-year-old playmate. Tate's conviction is the continuation of a trend in Florida, where many juvenile criminals are prosecuted as adults.
