Former Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, left, and her husband Mark Kelly leave after the sentencing of Jared Loughner, in back of U.S. District Court Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012, in Tucson, Ariz. U.S. District Judge Larry Burns sentenced Jared Lee Loughner, 24, to life in prison, for the January 2011 attack that left six people dead and Giffords and others wounded. Loughner pleaded guilty to federal charges under an agreement that guarantees he will spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole.
