Sean Taylor

The man who shot and killed Sean Taylor in 2007 has been sentenced to 57 years in prison after being convicted of second degree murder and armed burglary. From the AP:

A Florida man who prosecutors say fired the fatal shot in the 2007 killing of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor has been sentenced to more than 57 years in prison.

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy imposed the sentence Thursday on 23-year-old Eric Rivera Jr., who was convicted in November of second-degree murder and armed burglary. Rivera had faced a maximum life sentence.

It seems like justice has been served.

    Sad situation all the way around, but definitely glad justice was served for Taylor. On pace, imo, to becoming one of the best safeties in NFL history.
