SoCal Man Gets 40 Years For Movie Theater Stabbing

LANCASTER (AP) — A Southern California man has been sentenced to more than 40 years in state prison for stabbing a moviegoer in the neck with a meat thermometer during a screening of the film “Shutter Island.”

Prosecutors say 40-year-old Landry Boullard was sentenced Friday in Lancaster Superior Court. He also was ordered to pay $21,000 in restitution to the victim who became comatose due to a brain injury.

Boullard was convicted last month of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Prosecutors say Boullard stabbed the victim in the neck with a digital thermometer after the victim asked a female companion of Boullard’s to stop talking on her cell phone.

Two Good Samaritans who intervened in the attack suffered minor injuries.

    This is exactly the type of person that should never be allowed in society again. Now, he will have 40 years to ponder his lack of impulse control.
