Jury Unanimously Recommends Death Penalty for Robert Bowers in Historic Hate Crime Sentencing

Robert Bowers has been sentenced to death by a federal jury in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for perpetrating the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history. The jury reached its decision after a two-week trial, and the sentence marks the first time since 1988 that a jury has recommended execution for a hate crime. U.S. Attorney Scott Brady has expressed hope that the decision brings closure to the victims and their families.
