Judge overturns sentence for notorious serial killer D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo


On Friday a federal judge 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. Malvo arrived illegally in Miami in 2001 and, in December of that year, he and his mother were apprehended by the Border Patrol in Bellingham, Washington.[6] (His mother was deported back to Jamaica from the U.S. on December 15, 2002 in the aftermath of the D.C. area sniper shootings.)[7]) In January 2002, Malvo was released on a $1,500 bond.[6]    At the time of his arrest, he was 4 months shy of his 18th birthday. His partner John Allen Muhammad was an illegal as well.

Mustang offers us his view on the matter with a guest post:

Justice Denied

In 2002, Lee Boyd Malvo was convicted of taking part in a terrifying serial sniper murder case.  This saga isn’t over yet because (Clinton appointed) Federal District Judge Raymond Jackson (yep) has thrown out Malvo’s back to back life sentences … on the basis that the sentences were unconstitutional.  The claim: Malvo wasn’t aware when he made a plea bargain (to avoid the death sentence) that teenagers have rights denied to everyone else … well, because they’re teenagers.

Malvo was only 17 when he was arrested for a series of shootings that killed ten people and wounded three more.  Typical of cowards, Malvo and his side-kick shot people while concealed in the trunk of an automobile.  (Aside: the press initially reported that these murders were being carried out by terrorists, but later the press said “No, this wasn’t terrorism.”  If a certain behavior causes terror among people, it’s terrorism … further proof that the American people should completely ignore the lame-stream media).

By the way, Malvo’s lawyers are now arguing that he was but a naïve child at the time of his crimes, merely a pawn of accomplice John Allen Muhammad (yep) and that, as such, Malvo should have a future opportunity for parole.  Jackson’s decision follows two Supreme Court decisions, one that prohibited mandatory life sentences without parole for juveniles, and the other that established a framework within which retroactive reviews of all such sentences might be conducted by state courts.  Judge Anthony Kennedy authored this majority opinion (Oh say it isn’t so!)  Typically a leftist, Kennedy opined, (paraphrasing) that the opportunity for release of convicted dependents [should be] granted to those who can demonstrate they are capable of change.  Kennedy/Jackson seem not at all bothered that ten innocent persons were murdered by this scumbag, and laying cold in the grave, had no opportunity to reach their full potential in life.  Typical of leftist thinking, in my view … 

No doubt Malvo will be released one day; I have little doubt that he will be  welcomed with open arms into the loving care of the Nation of Islam (with whom then Senator Obama’s Trinity Baptist Church formed an ever-so-close alliance). 

Justice in America today depends on skin color; it is precisely this sort of selective law-making by the courts that generates the kind of anger displayed by Dylann Roof in Charleston.  So I have to ask: is this the best our country’s courts can do?

    If I remember correctly, those murders were acts of jihad. No wonder the press says no terrorism – don’t want to hurt the pweshious feeweingz of the Muslims who want to kill us, have killed us, and will kill us again and get away with it!

    later the press said “No, this wasn’t terrorism.”

    As one who lives in Northern Virginia when the entire D.C. metro area had to live through those weeks in 2002, I can attest to the fact that we were terrorized.

    Just to name a few points:

    1. We bobbed and weaved at the gas pumps in the hope that a moving target would be harder to hit.

    2. We carried everywhere we drove. It’s legal in Virginia to carry if the weapon is in plain sight on the car seat.

    3. We rushed into and from buildings of all sorts: Office Depot, banks, grocery stores, our own homes if we didn’t have attached garages (I don’t have such a garage.

    4. We sat in our homes with either our back to the walls or the shades and blinds closed — or both.

    That Malvo’s sentences have been overturned is an outrage! Anybody who could do what he did is an adult. And as Z pointed out above, he was almost 18 years old. The overturning of Malvo’s sentences on a retroactive SCOTUS ruling is not justice served.

    And let us not forget that Malvo entered a guilty plea in Spotsylvania County and agreed to serve two life sentences without parole.

    I agree with Mustang: one day, Malvo will be paroled.

    INSANITY!

      That is my memory of it… yet I don’t see anything of consequence in the media or blogs about this. This post was picked up elsewhere and a comment left stated there are still cases in Maryland pending that he wasn’t tried for thinking that this put him away for life. Perhaps he can be tried there. Murder cases generally do not time out.

        Bunkerville,
        there are still cases in Maryland pending that he wasn’t tried for thinking that this put him away for life.

        Now that you mention that detail, I remember it!

        At the time, Maryland saw no point in spending funds on piling on more life sentences.

        I almost certain that Malvo could be tried there (as you mentioned about murder cases not having a statute of limitations). Caveat: Maryland, like most of the Northeast, is infested with leftist judges and leftist citizens.

        Thanks AOW.. it is a good point. Glad it is true. The commenter also mentioned that they still had the death penalty but I thought as well, never in Maryland….

    I was stunned at this decision. The kid was only four months short of 18…the kid knew what he was doing. This is not only a travesty but it sends a hideous message to all American kids…and immigrant law-breaking kids and their families.
    “We do NOTHING to protect ourselves here…come one, come ALL!”

    Yes, the kid could have been, and probably was, threatened or at least persuaded that killing from a trunk was fine…if he’s capable of falling for that, he’ll be a threat later, particularly after getting pampered and supported by islamists inside the prison, let’s see what he does as a man, 10 years from now on parole…angry, feeling like a total victim, supported by those who want to destroy us.

      His rap sheet will no doubt be expunged since he was considered a juvenile. His buddy for an occupation provided fake passports and Visas….. this was 2002….no doubt it should have been considered a terrorist act by a Muslim.

      Sorry to say absolutely nothing stuns me. How long before annual ceremonies in all five NYC boroughs recognizing the self sacrifice in the name of Allah of the 21 9/11 hijackers? Ceremonies replete with reciting their names in public while prayers go out from the new 120 story minaret erected with federal funds from Homeland Security.
      Sounds crazy?

        Bunker, with all due respect, you must be kidding; deport him? He probably filed for citizenship while in the slammer in between playing hide the sausage with his fellow sheep f____rs 🐑. When this prick walks out he will have every gov’t entitlement heaped upon him and who knows maybe a lawsuit against the feds for violating his juvenile civil rights.

    Doesn’t it warm the cockles of your heart knowing an illegal convicted white murdering teenager has had free legal council working night and day these past 15 years in the hopes of one day releasing him back into society; free legal advice we the taxpayers are providing him. Talk about slitting our own throats…. And how many burqua wearers are strolling the streets of Chappaqua, NY, trailing behind their Nike wearing (no more sandals with black ban-lob socks) husbands while wife #2 is home watching the 10 future America-hating kids? And just imagine, it is even worse in the lost once white continent of Europe.

      The media mantra seems to be that no black person, even or especially when his name is something like Louis Farrakhan, or Barack Hussein Obama, or Islam al-Jerkoff, can be a terrorist. The fact is that blacks in America are prime targets for recruitment by inane Islam; we find this going on in the ghettos (places that blacks have in large measure created for themselves), in all-black schools, in local mosques, and in our prisons. This is aggravating in the extreme; I wish the American people would close ranks on this issue.
