Michael Pace, the man who pleaded guilty to killing 16 year-old Blair Holt on a CTA bus 10 years ago, was resentenced today to 75 years in prison.

Pace, who was also 16 at the time of the shooting, was originally sentenced to 100 years in prison.

But an appeals court threw out the sentence because the judge in the trial case made “inappropriate comments” about Pace’s background during the sentencing.
