Florida’s Supreme Court on Thursday upheld simultaneous 1,000-year prison sentences for a man convicted of violently assaulting and raping three women in the early 1980s when he was a juvenile.

Arthur O’Derrell Franklin has served more than 30 years for raping three women in 1983 when he was 17, the News Service of Florida reported.

Franklin’s hearing evoked “Graham v. Florida,” a 2010 US Supreme Court case that mandated juveniles cannot be sentenced to life imprisonment without parole if they have committed nonhomicidal offenses. The ruling also said that such juveniles must be afforded “meaningful” opportunities to obtain release if they’ve demonstrated “maturity and rehabilitation,” before the end of their sentence, the report said.

Franklin’s attorneys argued that their client should be retried because he was a juvenile when he committed his crimes. But the Florida Supreme Court’s majority opinion argued the “Graham” case did not apply to Franklin because he is “eligible” for parole.

The dissenting justices argued that Franklin’s case should be reconsidered to determine whether the parole process provides Franklin “a meaningful opportunity for release based on demonstrated maturity and rehabilitation.”

Per Franklin’s prison sentence, he will eligible for parole in the year 2,352 – just in time for his 387th birthday. Franklin’s sentence was previously upheld in 2014.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
