DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo’s life sentence thrown out

A federal district court judge has overturned the sentence of Lee Boyd Malvo, one of the two people convicted in D.C.-area Beltway sniper attacks nearly 15 years ago, according to a ruling released Friday.

Malvo was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the sniper-style attacks committed around the region in October 2002 along with John Allen Muhammad. Ten people were killed and three others were shot during a three-week period.

    I saw this on the news feed yesterday and it really pissed me off.

    Judge appointed by Bill Clinton and known for pressing for sentencing reforms, tells local court to try again. Virginia DA says he’ll apply for Life Imprisonment .

    Now that he is an adult he should be executed.

    “diminished culpability”?

    OK then: how about life minus a day.

    • Watchman

      I’d settle for 25 years to life for each of the six murders he was convicted of as long as they were served consecutively.

    Is there no limit to the evil of liberal judges??

      This Perp should have been put in front of a firing squad of snipers, just for the poetic justice.

        I happened to be in DC when Malvo and his mentor were mass-murdering people, and I did think about it when I was out with friends at night.

    Inhumane rights.

    Don’t forget, both Lee Boyd Malvo and his older mentor, John Allen Muhammad, were both muslims, albeit the Nation of Islam kind of muslims.

    The MSM glosses over this evidence and pushes the narrative was about John Allen Muhammad’s family problems, and that Lee Boyd Malvo was just an impressionable youth, instead of both being jihadists.

    This judge deserves to be lynched

    I agree with showing him mercy, because he was a minor, and under the control of a psychopath. And he was shown mercy, because he wasn’t executed.
