An Oregon judge has ruled that a 112-year sentence is not cruel and unusual punishment for a man who killed four people and wounded 25 others as a 15-year-old high school student in 1998.
The Oregonian reports Judge Thomas Hart turned down Kip Kinkel’s request Thursday for a new sentencing hearing.
The judge in Salem rejected an argument from Kinkel’s lawyer based on federal court decisions that mandatory life sentences with no possibility of parole are unconstitutional for juveniles.
Lawyers for the state argued that Kinkel received a long sentence, not a mandatory life sentence, and the judge exercised discretion and considered Kinkel’s age.
Kinkel killed his parents and then two students at Thurston High School, in Springfield. He abandoned an insanity defense and accepted a plea deal.
Kinkel is now 31.
