TEEN'S SENTENCE-SUPREME COURT
Ohio Supreme Court agrees to hear appeal of man sentenced to 115 years in prison as teen

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 25, 2014 6:32 AM EDT
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio


The Ohio Supreme Court says it will hear an appeal from a man who claims a 115-year prison sentence imposed when he was 15 years old violates his constitutional rights.

Brandon Moore was tried as an adult and convicted by a jury in the August 2001 armed kidnapping, robbery and gang rape of a 21-year-old woman and drew the sentence from a Mahoning County judge in January 2008.

He claims a definite sentence that exceeds his life expectancy for crimes he committed as a juvenile violates the constitutional ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

The Vindicator (http://bit.ly/1jKBpGj ) reports that the state's high court agreed to hear the case this week after a 2-1 decision of the 7th District Court of Appeals in December 2013 left the sentence intact.
