D.C. Sniper Lee Boyd Malvo Appeals Life Without Parole Sentence

by / July 3, 2014 Black News 187 Comments

Convicted sniper Lee Boyd Malvo is appealing a judge’s decision not to overturn his sentencelee-boyd-malvo of life without parole. Malvo’s attorneys claim that the sentence is unconstitutional given the Supreme Court ruling which outlaws mandatory sentences of life without parole for juvenile offenders.

Boyd, who was 17 at the time of his conviction, is seeking a sentence in line with the Supreme Court’s ruling.

The Supreme Court ruled on two cases, Miller v. Alabama  and Jackson v. Hobbs, both of which involved young men convicted of hοmicides when they were 14-years-old.

“In neither case did the sentencing authority have any discretion to impose a different punishment. State law mandated that each juvenile die in prison even if a judge or jury would have thought that his youth and its attendant characteristics, along with the nature of his crime, made a lesser sentence (for example, life with the possibility of parole) more appropriate,” wrote Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.

Malvo’s attorneys filed an appeal after a Virginia judge rejected their motion last month.

Malvo was convicted for his role in sniper attαcks which took the lives of 10 people in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland.

Over 10 years ago, Malvo and John Allan Muhammad went on a notorious kιlling spree.

Although Malvo was unapologetic when he was caught, he has since expressed remorse for his role in the kιllings. In a rare interview, Malvo described how he was impacted by the last moments of one of his victims, particularly the look in his victim’s eyes.

“They are penetrating ………It is the worst sort of pain I have ever seen in my life. His eyes. . . . Words do not possess the depth in which to fully convey that emotion and what I felt when I saw it. . . . You feel like the worst piece of scum on the planet.”

  1. No obstante, en 2006 había 93 millones de niños y niñas desescolarizados, más que la población total de las Islas Filipinas. Casi el 80% de estos niños y niñas vivían en África Subsahariana y Asia Meridional. Para una cantidad demasiado elevada de niños y niñas, el derecho humano básico a una educación es un sueño, una idea que no se ha convertido en realidad.
