Jared Loughner was sentenced to life in prison for killing six people and wounding 13 others, including Giffords, last year. Several victims testified before Loughner was sentenced including Ron Barber, one of Gifford's former aides. SOUNDBITE) (English) GIFFORDS' FORMER CONGRESSIONAL AIDE RON BARBER SAYING: "'I hold no hatred for you, but I am very, very angry and sick at heart about what you did and the hurt you have imposed on all of us.' I told him he must live with this burden and he'll never see outside of prison again." Twenty-four-year-old Loughner, a college dropout with a history of mental illness, received seven consecutive life sentences plus 140 years in prison without the possibility of parole. Judge Larry Burns explained that the seven life sentences represented the six people killed and the failed attempt to assassinate Giffords. Giffords suffered a head wound as a result of the shooting that left her with speech difficulties, a paralyzed right arm, diminished sight and a limp. She resigned from Congress in January to focus on her recuperation.
