Jared Lee Loughner, 24, has been sentenced to serve seven consecutive life sentences, plus 140 years in federal prison for the January 2011 shooting rampage that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, outside a grocery store in Tucson, Ariz.

Giffords was left partially blind and her right arm paralyzed after being shot in the head by Loughner.

Loughner pleaded guilty under an agreement that guarantees he will spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole. He avoids a federal death sentence, although state prosecutors could still decide to try him. He was diagnosed with schizophrenia and underwent forcible psychotropic drug treatments following the shooting.
