12 Year Old Lifer

12 Year Old Lifer: True Stories


In April 2010, 12-year-old Paul Gingerich helped his friend Colt Lundy, 15, shoot and kill his stepfather Phillip Danner in the US state of Indiana. With access to both boys and their families, this film explores their case, offering an insight into the crime and its aftermath. The programme finds out how Paul's relatives waged a controversial appeal for him to be retried as a juvenile, meaning he could avoid being transferred to an adult prison when he's old enough.
