Virginia: Commutation Struck Down!

A federal judge has ruled that a commutation of sentence granted by former Gov. Bob McDonnell was unconstitutional. McDonnell commuted a sentence of six life terms to a term of 40 years.

The recipient, one Travion Blount, was 15 years old, in 2006, when he robbed a Norfolk house party with two 18-year-olds. Blount refused to plead guilty and was convicted at trial of 49 of 51 felonies and sentenced to six life terms plus an additional 118 years.
