Kids Behind Bars: Life or Parole

A&E | 9:00 pm

Season 2 of this powerful reality series — which spotlights previously convicted child offenders sentenced to life in prison without parole who now are petitioning to be re-sentenced — opens with a premiere episode devoted to Shelton Jackson, who was 17 when he was sentenced to life without parole for the murder of a new father. Now 48, Jackson has been granted a re-sentencing hearing that could end in his release, but the victim's widow vehemently opposes that notion.
