Superior Court judge vacates sentences of four NH murderers
The new hearings don't necessarily mean their sentences will change, but attorneys for Robert Tulloch, Robert Dingman, Eduardo Lopez Jr., and Michael Soto will be able to introduce mitigating factors related to their age at the time of the crimes in the hope of inducing a judge to issue a reduced sentence.
Lawyers for the four men filed their appeals last year, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Miller v. Alabama that the Eighth Amendment, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment, "forbids a sentencing scheme that mandates life in prison without the possibility of parole for juvenile offenders."
