Sun Rises in East; Dog Bites Man

John Allen Muhammad, one of the Washington snipers, was convicted, again, of murder, this time of 6 victims in Maryland, where there is no death penalty. I can see it as a form of insurance if something goes wrong in the appeal in the Virginia cases, where he received the death penalty, but it appears otherwise to be a waste of prosecutorial and judicial resources. Any other state want to sentence someone with a death sentence to life in prison?

I always liked exile as a punishment for such crimes - can't we reinstate it? We brits used to use Australia for such purposes!
The place we want to put them might have an objection, but a good thought.
