West Palm Beach, FL (AP) - A man convicted in a brutal West
Palm Beach gang rape has been resentenced to 60 years in prison.
Twenty-year-old Jakaris Taylor was originally sentenced to life
in prison for the 2007 attack on a mother and her son at the Dunbar
Village housing project.
But a U.S. Supreme Court decision has struck down life sentences
for minors for all offenses except murder.
Taylor was a minor at the time of the attack.
He was resentenced Tuesday.
