Supreme courts

This photo provided by the Virginia Department of Corrections shows Lee Boyd Malvo. As a teenager, Malvo terrorized the Washington region in 2002 as one-half of a sniper team. Now he’s at the center of a case the Supreme Court will hear this fall. But the justices’ eventual ruling probably will mean less for him than for a dozen other inmates also sentenced to life without parole for murders they committed as teens. At issue is whether Malvo should be resentenced in Virginia in light of rulings restricting life-without-parole sentences for crimes by juveniles. (Virginia Department of Corrections via AP)
