AUSTIN, TEXAS — After four hours of deliberation, a jury awarded two Sandy Hook parents defamed by Alex Jones $45.2 million in punitive damages Friday.
The figure falls shorts of the $150 million the parents sought, but brings total damages owed to the parents to $49.3 million when the $4.1 million from an initial verdict on Thursday is included. That’s on top of about $1.5 million in sanctions Jones had already been ordered to pay.
