Judge Larry Burns has sentenced Jared 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.”
“He should never get out of prison. I find this is just punishment. He will never have the opportunity to pick up a gun and do this again,” Burns said.
