“CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia – James Alex Fields Jr., a neo-Nazi who rammed his car into counterprotesters of a “Unite the Right” rally in 2017, leaving one dead and dozens injured, was sentenced to life in prison plus 419 years in state court Monday.
Judge Richard E. Moore upheld a Virginia jury’s recommended sentence from December. He also imposed a fine of $480,000.
Moore said he’d never been involved in a case, as an attorney or a judge, in which so many people were injured at one time by one person.
“Today’s verdict is based on what you did,” Moore said, addressing Fields. “It was not a spur of the moment action.”
The death penalty was off the table under the terms of a plea deal reached in March on his conviction for federal hate crimes. …”
This doesn’t come as a surprise.
In light of how the police behaved in Charlottesville and the other sentences in the DeAndre Harris case, what did we expect to happen? Welcome to Woke Justice.
