Md. judge denies DC sniper Malvo’s bid for new sentence

August 16th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

A man convicted of taking part as a teenager in deadly sniper attacks that terrorized the Washington area has lost a bid for a new sentence in Maryland. Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Robert Greenberg said in a ruling dated Tuesday that Lee Boyd Malvo’s “physical, mental and emotional state” and the influence of John Allen Muhammad was given full consideration before he was sentenced to life without parole for six counts of first-degree murder. Malvo was convicted in Maryland, and in Virginia, of playing a role when he was 17 in the 2002 shootings that killed 10 people and wounded three.



Malvo’s attorneys say his sentences should be thrown out because the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that mandatory life sentences for juveniles is unconstitutional.
