Juvenile "Lifer" Re-sentenced, Gets Change at Parole
An Erie man, currently serving a life sentence for murder, could possibly get a second chance at freedom.
Friday, Judge Stephanie Domitrovich re-sentenced James House, 37, to serve 32 years to life in prison.
In April of 1999, House was 17 years old, when he was charged with fatally shooting Eddie Outlaw, 21.
A jury found him guilty of first degree murder in March of 2000, and he's been in prison ever since.
House is one of 9 juvenile lifers to receive a new sentence, after the Supreme Court ruled life sentences without parole for juveniles as unconstitutional.
He will now have to serve 14 more years in prison, before he is eligible for parole.
