Rapper Nipsey Hussle‘s killer was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison on Wednesday, February 22.
Hussle was shot dead outside his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles on March 31, 2019.
Superior Court Judge H. Clay Jacke II sentenced Eric R. Holder Jr., who was found guilty of the 2019 first-degree murder of the Grammy-nominated hip-hop.
“I am very mindful of what was presented as to Mr. Holder’ mental health,” Jacke said. “I am also mindful of the devastation caused to the victims and their families. I believe this sentence balances the two.”
After a monthlong trial, jurors in July also convicted Holder of two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter and two counts of assault with a firearm for gunfire that hit two other men at the scene who survived.
Jacke sentenced Holder to 25 years to life for the murder, 25 more for a firearm sentencing enhancement and 10 for assault with a firearm. He set several other sentencing additions and ordered that others run concurrent. He also gave Holder credit for the nearly four years he has served since the shooting.
