Cozen O’Connor: First 'Juvenile Lifers' in Pennsylvania Granted Parole

First 'Juvenile Lifers' in Pennsylvania Granted Parole

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Hayes Hunt, a member of Cozen O'Connor's Commercial Litigation department, discusses the potential release of his pro bono client, Tyrone Jones, in various news outlets. "It's really a remarkable day, considering he's been thinking about this for years," said Hayes. "He's going to be outside a prison for the first time in his adult life." Hayes said this is the beginning of a long process of reentry. "It's going to take a lot of social and legal services to help him," he said. "He hasn't cooked for himself. These basic fundamental life skills, he doesn't have. The tallest building in Philadelphia was still [City Hall, topped with the statue of] William Penn when he went to prison. It's a very different world he's going to have to learn to live in."
