Justin Ross Harris Sentenced To Life In Prison For Toddler's Hot-Car Death 6.12.2016 Politics on
A Georgia man will spend the rest of his life behind bars for intentionally leaving his toddler son to die inside a sweltering sport utility vehicle on a summer day, a judge ruled on Monday. Justin Ross Harris, 35, was found guilty last month of felony murder, as well as counts of first- and second-degree cruelty to a child in connection with the June 2014 death of the 22-month-old boy, Cooper. The former Home Depot web developer was also convicted of criminal attempt to commit sexual exploitation of a child because of explicit texts he sent to a teenage girl. Looking exhausted and wearing an orange prison jumpsuit in the courtroom, Harris said only “yes” and “no” in response to Cobb County Superior Court Judge Mary Staley Clark. His attorneys declined to offer any evidence on Monday to mitigate his sentence. During the trial, they had described Harris as a flawed but God-fearing man who loved his only child. They said he simply forgot to take the boy to his daycare center after a father-and-son ...
