Michigan Man Sentenced To Life in Prison…Again
It seems a little confusing at first when you hear about someone getting a life sentence for a second time but that's exactly what happened to 38-year-old Juan Carlos Nunez of Michigan.
According to WNEM, this dude got a life sentence when he was 16 years old after he murdered a 22-year-old restaurant worker during a 1997 robbery in Holland, Michigan. An Ottawa County Judge re-sentenced him earlier this week to life without the possibility of parole. Still confused? I was too.
You see the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that mandatory life sentences for juvenile offenders are unconstitutional. I had no idea that was even a thing but I get it, I guess. So with that ruling, it makes it possible for another judge to reduce the Nunez sentence to 25 to 60 years with the possibility of parole. Still confused? Yeah, me too lol.
