Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was on hand in a Tuscon, Ariz., courtroom Thursday to confront her assailant, Jared Lee Loughner, as a judge sentenced him to seven life sentences, plus 140 years imprisonment for the January 2011 rampage that killed six and critically wounded the congresswoman.
In passing down his sentence, U.S. District Court Judge Larry A. Burns told the courtroom that Loughner is not insane and knew what he was doing the day he decided to go on a murderous spree. “Facts indicated he traveled there with the purpose of shooting Giffords and others and planned ahead,” Burns said. “He will never have an opportunity to pick up a gun again.”
