Tia Skinner looks to her family and addresses them during her resentencing hearing in 31st Circuit court in Port Huron, Mich. on Thursday, July 11, 2013. Skinner, who was convicted of plotting to have her father stabbed to death when she was just 17 years old was sentenced again to life in prison without parole. Skinner returned to court as a result of a U.S. Supreme Court decision that bars mandatory no-parole sentences for under-18s convicted of first-degree murder. The St. Clair County Circuit Court judge was free to give Skinner a shot at parole but settled again on a sentence that means she’ll never leave prison. (AP Photo/The Port Huron Times Herald, Mark R.
