The Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office announced that former Allan Hancock College students Ali Mohammed and Lavell White will be spending the rest of their lives in prison without the possibility of parole for first-degree murder.
The sentence was handed down on Monday by a Santa Maria Superior Court judge.
22-year-old Mohammed and 25-year-old White were found guilty of killing Terence Brandon Richardson on Dec. 30, 2014.
Richardson was shot to death in the 1000 block of East Jones Street in Santa Maria. Both Mohammed and White were athletes with Allan Hancock’s basketball team.
