The defendant in question has a long history of criminal activity, with the severity of their crimes increasing over time. The judge has taken into account the impact of the defendant’s actions on various individuals, including family members of the victims.
However, the judge notes that while there were convictions for aggravated assault and malice murder, the state has acknowledged that there were no convictions for felony murder. The judge has also considered the prospects for rehabilitation and public safety, as well as the deterrent effect of the sentence.
Ultimately, the judge has decided to issue the maximum sentence required by law, which is 30 years to be served in the custody of the Georgia Department of Corrections.
