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.

    Clip that rapist! Go get the lopping shears, neuter that perp' and throw that s*** in the wastepaper basket, or feed it to the dogs! I'm serious, if you're serious about commenting on a rapist, well boy howdy, this is it! Thanx.

    There you go, killer thug. Live healthy while in the joint, and you might get to see the world again, dirtbag. And then some piece of dirt young thug mugs and kills you on the day you get out (because 80 year olds are easy targets). I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
