Almost every country in the world treats juveniles who commit murder differently to the United States.

This is particularly true in Tennessee, where the state sentences juvenile offenders to a quasi-life sentence of 51 years.

Fault Lines investigates the case of Almeer Nance, convicted of felony murder for an armed robbery he took part in as a 16-year-old in 1996. He received a sentence of 51 years and has no meaningful opportunity to have a second chance in life to reconnect with his family.
