So brave. Gabby will come face to face with her shooter for the first time since the tragic supermarket incidence, as he is due to be sentenced.
On Nov. 8, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords will face the man who shot her in the head, as Jared Lee Loughner stands trial for the crime he committed back in Jan. 2011. Jared pleaded guilty to the shooting that left six people dead, and he has organized a deal that ensures he will not get the death penalty.
Gabby was one of the 19 people Jared shot when he open fired in a Tucson, Ariz., supermarket last year, and she has since had a very long road to recovery. After spending several months in a hospital, she was moved to a recovery center. She only has 50 percent of vision in her eyes, and her speech is impaired, but overall she has made a remarkable recovery.
Jared, a diagnosed schizophrenic, is expected to be sentenced to life without parole, a sentence which Gabby and her husband Mark Kelly are “satisfied” with, according to a statement from Mark.
Hopefully this sentencing will bring justice and peace to the victims of Jared’s crime.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is life without parole an acceptable sentence?
