Peppler Gets Virtual Life Sentence

An Angola man is headed to prison for decades fol­low­ing his sen­tenc­ing Tues­day in Steuben Supe­rior Court. 49-year-old Jef­frey Pep­pler was sen­tenced to 60 years behind bars, for stab­bing his 52-year-old sis­ter Paige to death on Jan­u­ary 3rd. The 60 year sen­tence was the max­i­mum allowed under terms of a plea agree­ment that was reached in the case last month. It means that Pep­pler will likely spend the rest of his life in prison, as the 60 year sen­tence means that he would be 99 years old if he lived long enough to be released. The sen­tence was handed down after Pep­pler entered a guilty plea to the mur­der charge, in which an attempted mur­der charge for the stab­bing of his mother was dismissed.
