Kreutzer sentenced to life (with eligibility for parole)

As the Fayetteville Observer reports here, Sergeant William Kreutzer Jr. was sentenced this afternoon to confinement for life, a dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and reduction to E-1. Kreutzer shot 19 soldiers at Fort Bragg in 1995, killing one. At his original court-martial, he was sentenced to death. His original death sentence and the contested findings were set aside, largely because the military judge erroneously denied a defense request for a mitigation specialist. United States v. Kreutzer, 59 M.J. 773 (A. Ct. Crim. App. 2004), aff'd, 61 M.J. 272 (C.A.A.F. 2005).

Has anyone here run the numbers for when he is eligible?

I think we need to know when to avoid mustering on the drill fields.
