Roof’s defense team said, “We want to express our sympathy to all of the families who were so grievously hurt by Dylann Roof’s actions. Today’s sentencing decision means that this case will not be over for a very long time.” A formal sentence will begin on Wednesday in which families will be able to speak in court.
