U.S. Supreme Court wrestles over 'D.C. Sniper' life sentence appeal

U.S. Supreme Court wrestles over 'D.C. Sniper' life sentence appealU.S. Supreme Court justices on Wednesday questioned whether a lower court sufficiently considered that a man convicted in the deadly 2002 “D.C. Sniper” shooting spree in the Washington area was a minor at the time of the crimes when he was sentenced to life in prison.

The most likely contender based on questions he asked during the argument would be Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
