Nichols Sentenced

Nichols expresses sorrow over bombing

Terry Nichols is offering words of sorrow over the Oklahoma City bombing -- but those words haven't changed his fate. He was sentenced today in state court in Oklahoma to life without the possibility of parole for his role in the nation's worst-ever act of domestic terrorism.

Reading a statement in court, Nichols said his heart "truly goes out to all the victims and survivors" and to others who were affected by the bombing. He said, "Words cannot adequately express the sorrow" he's felt for "the grief they have all suffered."

The judge, though, called Nichols a "terrorist" -- and said there's no way of knowing what could have motivated him to help carry out the bombing. He ordered Nichols to serve consecutive life terms on each of the 161 counts of first-degree murder. Nichols had already been sentenced to life without parole on federal charges.
