surely thats a typo ???
shouldnt it be 2071 ???
even 2027 might be considered life...
15 years including the time already served ..
then it might take a few hearings for his petition to be accepted
in 2017 however he will probably be 21 an adult...
maybe that is what was the deciding fact for the short 4 years...
Normally, second-degree murder convictions result in a mandatory life sentence, with the possibility of parole after 10-25 years, depending on the sentence. (Note that this is a possible, parole—by no means a guarantee that the convict won't spend the rest of his life behind bars.)
The rules differ for those who are convicted before they turn 18. I assume this is one of those. Still seems ridiculously low, though.
