In case you have not heard Allen Andrade was found guilty of all counts including 1st degree murder and hate crime. He also was found guilty of auto theft, identity theft, and starting riots in the jail. The 1st degree murder has a mandatory life sentence with no parole and the others will give him another 60 years. Total is life +60. This case set president with the hate crime conviction on the murder of a transgender person. It was justice served, however we reached this point because of the taking of a precious life.
