Its been 17 years since people living in the DMV (D.C., Maryland, and Virginia) area have D.C.been under the terror of DC snipers, Lee Boyd Malvo and John Allen Muhammad.

Muhammad has since been executed for his crimes in 2009 and Malvo was supposed to serve two life sentences in prison but now that may all change because of a new precedent for juveniles.

According to NBC News, a judge has thrown out Malvo’s sentences since he is now able to get a new sentence hearing after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional for juveniles to serve mandatory life sentences.

Since Malvo was 17 at the time of his arrest, a judge has granted him the same privileges even though his actions led to the death of 10 people.

Luckily, prosecutors can still appeal the ruling and gun for another life sentence.
