He can still be in jail for life. He can get life with the ELIGIBILITY of parole only after 40 years served. They do not have to grant parole.

Unfortunately, Alanna's parents may be gone in 40 years, too. But I sure want to believe that her siblings will have something to say about Holder if he is ever scheduled for a parole hearing.
