Graham v. Florida and Very Long Sentences

Rodrigo Caballero, 16, is not guilty of murder, but not for lack of trying.  He was convicted of three counts of attempted murder for shooting at three rival gang members, wounding one of them, Bob Egelko reports in the SF Chron.  His sentences total 110 years.

Does that violate Graham v. Florida?  The California Supreme Court has taken the issue up.
