Katherine White I can't believe they are going to waste time and money on a new sentencing hearing for Lee Boyd Malvo. His crime was heinous. He was tried fairly as an adult and was given a life sentence because he was young. Otherwise he would have been executed as his cohort. He deserves no more "special" consideration for his age. His sentence should remain the same.
I have lived in Aspen Hill since 1970 and except for the several year era of the Aspen Hill Rapist, the 3 week reign of terror that Malvo and his step father incurred on the Aspen Hill/Silver Spring/Rockville area was horrific. People were terrified to buy gas. They would hide behind their car doors or in their cars like that was going to make a difference. Life sentence was not fair to all the innocent people they murdered or shot throughout the Washington/Virginia vicinity.
