Breivik was arrested and taken into custody, as police searched for survivors in the aftermath of the attacks. Though he admitted to the attacks, he pleaded not guilty in a closed-door hearing on July 25. Breivik has said that he belongs to an organization with terror cells that remain at large.
On August 24, 2012, a Norwegian court sentenced Breivik to 21 years in prison, the maximum sentence allowed in Norway. Although he can be released after his sentence of 21 years under Norwegian law, he will likely have his sentence extended for the rest of his life due to the severity of his crimes and the his statement that he would have liked to kill more people during his trial. Under Norwegian law, if a person is considered a threat to the public then they will not be released back into society.

Armed and ruthless, spree killers become infamous for turning a flash of anger and resentment into a deadly rampage. Columbine killer Dylan Klebold introduced America to the horrors of school shootings when he killed 13 students and teachers in 1999, and in 2007 Seung-Hui Cho made us relive the nightmare when he murdered 32 people at Virginia Tech. In the end killers like these often become their own victims, when they turn their weapons on themselves.
