CHICAGO (AP) - An Illinois Supreme Court ruling may mean more than 100 inmates serving life sentences without parole may be released early from prison.
 
The Thursday ruling applies to inmates who have imprisoned for murders they committed when they were juveniles. It makes the state supreme court the latest court to rule regarding a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling. That ruling determined that sentencing juveniles to life without parole constituted cruel and unusual punishment.
Since then, state courts have been deciding whether the ruling should be retroactive to apply to inmates in prison for crimes they committed as juveniles.
 
Thursday’s ruling to grant new sentencing hearings for the inmates stems from a case involving a lawsuit filed by an inmate convicted of murder when he was a juvenile.
 

Gov. Quinn makes push to increase minimum wage

Thursday, 20 March 2014 15:43 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is making his push to increase Illinois' minimum wage by shopping at a Gap clothing store in downtown Chicago.
 
The chain has instituted a policy of paying entry-level employees a higher minimum wage.
 
Quinn bought three sweaters for his young nieces on Thursday. The total was about $77 and he paid cash. Quinn called the store an example and added that he got quality clothes at a good price.
 
Illinois' minimum wage is $8.25, which is $1 more than the federal wage. Quinn wants to see Illinois' rate jump to at least $10 by the end of the year.
 
The issue also is a major campaign theme in his re-election bid against Republican businessman Bruce Rauner.
