Supreme Court Agrees To Take Up DC Sniper Case

(DC)- The Supreme Court will examine whether one of two snipers who killed ten people in the DC area 17 years ago deserves new sentencing in Virginia. The justices will review a decision by a lower court that ruled Lee Malvo must be resentenced because he was only 17 when the crimes were committed. A 2012 Supreme Court decision said people who commit crimes before turning 18 can’t be given a mandatory life-without-parole sentence. Virginia is appealing the ruling. Malvo received four sentences of life without parole in Virginia and six life sentences in Maryland.
