State v. BruneAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the sentence Defendant received in connection with his guilty plea to two counts of first-degree felony murder. The district court imposed consecutive hard twenty-five life sentences, meaning that Defendant would not be eligible for parole for fifty years. On appeal, Defendant argued that the district court erred by refusing to run his sentences consecutive to each other. The Supreme Court disagreed, holding that neither Defendant’s acceptance of responsibility, his expression of remorse, or other considerations led to the conclusion that the district court’s decision was arbitrary, fanciful, or unreasonable.
