15 to Life: Kenneth’s Story

At fifteen years old Kenneth Young was sentenced to life in prison after receiving four life sentences for carrying out armed robberies, were no one was actually injured. A landmark supreme court decision says that juveniles deserve special consideration as they don’t fully understand the consequences at such a young age. Currently however the United States is the only country in the world that sentences children to serve life in prison and this film sets about following Kenneth as he struggles for redemption.

  1. all of you that have compassion for him wonder if you would feel that way if you were the one robbed

  2. Darn! I want to watch this but it’s been removed. There are lots of videos that have been removed on this site. Maybe you could remove the dead links? Ty.

    • it works now, but you are right there is way to many deadlinks, 30 of which i’ve reported…but there all still there

    • Hi Tammy, you can easily watch this great documentary at You’ll have to rent it for $5 but it’s a good way to encourage good documentaries that are very hard to finance.

  3. These guys rule. Empathy rocks.

  4. The judge was definitely racist! I’m sorry but the judge was dead wrong. Kenneth was only 15 when when he did the crime(s). Three consecutive life terms? Murderers and rapists get less prison time. Shame on you judge !!!

  5. Looking at this man’s head, he had no frontal lobes whatsoever. It’s no wonder he has no morals, which is what the frontal lobes provides for humans. Also his head slopes back from his lips and he has a TINY brain pan. He looks barely human. 🙁

  6. wow what a young man Kennith is. my heart goes out to such strength. a fight i could not fight he seems to be winning. hang in there friend. grand reward for those who truly suffered…

  7. I knew the judge was racist as soon as I saw him.
