Supreme Court ruling will make it easier to sentence juveniles to life sentence without parole

(CNN) The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the sentence of life without parole for a juvenile offender in a 6-3 decision, rejecting arguments that such sentences should have additional limits.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh penned the decision for his conservative colleagues, holding that a sentencer will not have to make a separate finding that the juvenile offender was incapable of being rehabilitated.
The ruling will make it easier for those who committed their crime under the age of 18 to be sentenced to prison for life without parole.
It also highlights the impact of the court's new conservative majority.
Starting in 2005 when then-swing Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote an opinion barring the death penalty for juvenile offenders, the court had been putting limits on sentences for juvenile offenders.
Thursday's decision, with three of former President Donald Trump's nominees in the majority, reverses that trend.
Thursday's case concerned Brett Jones, who was charged with killing his grandfather in 2004 in Mississippi when Jones was 15 years old.
The two men were engaged in an argument and Jones stabbed his grandfather eight times.
Jones' lawyers had argued that before imposing a sentence, a sentencer must make a separate finding, based on facts, that there is permanent incorrigibility.
