Geraldo:I've been in the other courtroom watching the sentencing of that murderer.
Geraldo:The one who failed to get the charges reduced through a plea agreement.
During the trial, her attorneys tried to show that there were mitigating circumstances, but the judge didn't buy it.
Nancy:Didn't she commit two murders?
Geraldo:That's right. The judge sentenced her to 35 years to life in prison for each crime.
Nancy:Will she serve them consecutively or concurrently?
Geraldo:She'll be serving them consecutively, so even with time off for good behavior, she'll be spending the next 50 years or so in prison.
Nancy:So her only hope now is an appeal, right?
Geraldo:That's right. I'll be following this case for a long time to come.
Nancy:And getting lots of good copy.
Geraldo:Of course. What would we crime reporters do without juicy murders?
