On Thursday, Scott was sentenced to 150 years in state prison by Superior Court Judge Marc C. Lemieux, who also determined that the 20-year-old perpetrator will have to serve out at least 85 percent of his stint behind bars before he can even be eligible for parole (in accordance with the state’s No Early Release Act). Upon declaring his ruling, Judge Lemieux called Scott an “evil man” before saying, “The intention of this court is that this defendant never sees the light of the outside of a jail cell ever again. I hope one day, you realize the magnitude of what you’ve done here.”
Although the aforementioned murder was committed by a minor, that did stop one of Scott’s cousins from declaring that he should receive the death penalty. While assistant Monmouth County prosecutor Sean Brennan asked the judge for two consecutive life terms.
“These were acts of evil carried out by someone who knew exactly what he was doing,’’ Brennan said. “He killed them because he could. He killed them because he wanted to.”
Scott will not have the chance to become a free man again until 127 years and six months into his sentence. For more on this story, click the link below.
