(GEMS RADIO)- Eric Holder Jr., who murdered Nipsey Hussle, was sentenced to 60–life imprisonment for second-degree murder. Eric R. Holder Jr.’s sentence was delivered on Wednesday by Superior Court Judge H. Clay Jacke II following testimonies about the profound loss of the hip-hop sensation and local figure. He had already been determined to be responsible for the 33-year-old Hussle’s first-degree murder in 2019.

Nipsey Hussle’s Murderer’s Mental Health Was Considered

Holder was exposed to maltreatment and mental disease throughout his childhood, as revealed during the court hearings.

Mr. Holder’s mental health was discussed, and I am aware of that, Jacke stated. “I am also conscious of the suffering endured by the victims’ families. This sentence strikes a compromise between the two, in my opinion.”

In a South Los Angeles area in 2019, Holder Jr. gunned down Nipsey Hussle outside the Marathon, the clothing company Hussle created. In July 2021, a jury convicted him guilty.

The Verdict

During a case that lasted a month, the jury found Holder guilty on two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter and on two charges of assault with a handgun for firing shots that wounded two other men present at the incident. The other victims lived through their wounds. Holder was given a sentence of 25 years to life in prison for the murder and an additional 25 years for using a firearm.

For the charges of violence with a firearm, he additionally gave Holder a further ten years in prison. The judge commended Holder for his nearly four years of prior service.

He Shows No reaction

Holder was wearing orange prison garb. He kept his head down the entire time the proceedings were going on and showed no reaction when the punishment was read aloud. He merely spoke to establish with the court that he understood the conditions.
