Female, age 20, Ventura Youth Correctional Facility, Camarillo, California

“”When I was 13, my boyfriend and I, we were really, really high burglarizing a house in the desert. The burglary was interrupted… the people came home and my boyfriend brutally murdered them both. I am 20 years old. I came to this room when I was 14 and I have been sharing 7 x 10 feet of space with another woman since. I’ve been eligible for parole, but all four times the families of the victims came and spoke against my release. If it was my family, I would do the same, but I am a different person at 20 than the drugged child I was at 13.”"
