BREAKING NEWS – Norfolk, Virginia – A federal judge on Friday tossed out two life sentences for one of Virginia’s most notorious criminals, sniper Lee Boyd Malvo, and ordered Virginia courts to hold new sentencing hearings. In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Raymond Jackson in Norfolk said Malvo is entitled to new sentencing hearings after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that mandatory life sentences for juveniles are unconstitutional. Malvo was 17 when he was arrested in 2002 for a series of shootings that killed 10 people and wounded three over a three-week span in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Al Sharpton called the conviction of Malvo “racially motivated”. He further explained that “tossing this black youth in prison back then, established the typical jealousy of racist white people because he was gifted skilled marksman.”
