Nichols Sentence

Liane speaks with Mimi Wesson, Professor of Law at the University of Colorado about last week's sentencing of convicted Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols. Judge Richard Matsch gave Nichols the expected life sentence, but then in a statement surprised people by talking not about the deaths involved in the bombing, but about Nichols' attack on the U.S. constitution.
