Breaking: Jared Loughner Gets Life in Prison
The Arizona man who killed six people and wounded 13 others, including former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Jared Loughner pleaded guilty to the January 2011 shootings at a meet-and-greet with Rep. Giffords in Tuscon.
Victims and their families were in court today to give their own testimonies about that day and how it has changed their lives ever since.
According to the CNN report, "Judge Larry Burns has sentenced Loughner to seven consecutive life terms in prison, plus 140 years, without the possibility of parole.
Burns said six of the life sentences represent the six slain victims, and one represents the attempted assassination of Giffords.
'Each of those victims was important,' Burns said. 'It reflects each of those individual lives. There is a symbolic nature in this.'
