ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, JULY 31, 2017 AND THEREAFTER-FILE - In this Friday, Feb. 27, 2015 file photo, Republican state Rep. Rebecca Petty walks on the floor of the House chamber at the Arkansas state Capitol in Little Rock, Ark., to present her bill requiring that companies release the location of a cell phone when asked by police in criminal investigations. Petty considers herself tough on crime, but she also was a key mover of a ban to end juvenile life without parole in Arkansas in March 2017. It was a dramatic reversal for the second-term Republican. Petty comes to criminal justice reform from a painful perspective. Her 12-year-daughter, Andi, was raped and murdered in 1999. The killer, who was not a juvenile, is on death row now, and Petty remains a staunch supporter of the death penalty. But she changed her mind about tough sentencing for juveniles after reviewing scientific studies that show teens' brains are not yet fully developed. She also came to know a former gang member who was convicted of murder at 15, spent about 13 years in prison and turned his life around. (AP Photo/Danny Johnston)
