Man Accused of Placing Bomb in Colorado Mall Serve Life in Prison
Attempting to use an improvised explosive to destroy property and attempting to use an improvised explosive in relation to a violent crime are the charges the sixty five year old defendant will face when his trial begins later this summer. The offenses carry a minimum sentence of thirty five years in prison and a maximum of a life sentence but at sixty fives years old the thirty five year minimum could certainly serve as a life term as well.
The possible penalties that the defendant will face if the prosecution can secure a conviction are a testament as to the seriousness of a violent crime committed in the state of Colorado. If you are convicted on charges of a violent crime, especially if a deadly weapon or device is used during the incident you will certainly face some very serious jail time.
If a conviction is imminent the only real chance that this suspect will have of seeing the light of day outside of prison again is being able to strike a plea bargain with the prosecution though this suspects criminal history doesn’t necessarily bode well for leniency by the prosecution or the court system.
