I guess he should have cried and shown strong regret instead.

He got 3 life sentences and 15 years. Even if they take away the 15, he is still in prison for life and deserves to be there.

Look at the set on this dude!. He callously murdered several people and injured several and he wants an appeal.? Where does he think he is? Japan? If I were the the appeals judge I would tack on another 25 years just for having the gonads to think he might get off lighter for what he did.

ok, appeal accepted: one life sentence removed, you have two life sentences + 11 years to go. or he prefers changing the sentence and get the chair instead?

"DeSoto was sentenced to three life sentences. " "The judge also sentenced DeSoto to 15 years in prison" Guam is a permanent U.S. territory, for all intents and purposes it s America, like Hawaii.

The U.S. can and will usually impose severe sentences across the board for all on its soil or extradited aka justice for all; rather consistently. Japan conversely; ...its j-system, has established many different approaches to issuing sentences for its citizens, and alternatively has demonstrated bleak outcomes for extralocals.

Sounds like a waste of time and tax payers' money.

No sympathy here Chad. The only thing that would make me happier would be if they executed you. You are going to cost the tax payers about US$35,000 to keep in confinement which means that over a million dollars will likely be spent on the piece of garbage that is you.

@The Tiger The death sentence can no longer be used in many countries and i think japan is one of them
