Judge Upholds Scott County Man's Sentence

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) -- A Scott County judge has ruled that a man given a life sentence for his role in the 1993 killing of a teenager will remain imprisoned.
  

Scott County District Judge Joel Barrows on Friday upheld the life sentence given to 38-year-old Jason Means, who was convicted of first-degree kidnapping and second-degree murder in the killing of 17-year-old Michelle Jensen.
  

The Iowa Supreme Court had ordered a resentencing in Means' case because he was convicted as a juvenile. The decision followed a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 2010 limiting life-without-parole sentences given to juveniles.
  

The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/1krCYPW ) that before upholding Means' sentence, the judge noted he already has the possibility for parole.
  

Means was one of six people convicted in the shooting of Jensen.
