SD Supreme Court Upholds 90-Year Murder Sentence For Young Offender
An inmate who committed murder at the age of 17 has been denied a shorter prison sentence.
Carlos Quevedo stabbed a Rapid City convenience store clerk to death during a robbery in January 2017.
He appealed his 90-year sentence to the South Dakota Supreme Court.
In an opinion made public on Thursday, July 23, the high court upheld the sentence that allows Quevedo a chance at parole when he's 62.
