    Good: Three teens convicted of murder for death of accomplice in home invasion

    So heres the short of it.....

    Three teens have been convicted of murder for the death of an accomplice during a home invasion in 2012. They broke into an home, in which the homeowner shot a suspect, killing him. In Indiana, if you commit a crime in which an accomplice is killed, you can be charged with their death. My favorite line is from the defense attorneys, "Defense attorneys pointed to the teens’ ages and maintained they didn’t expect to break into a home that was occupied."

    Sounds like the y got what they deserved to me.

    Heres the basic story.... not much details but good nonetheless.

    In another local story, I saw that the kid who pleaded guilty and turned state's evidence may be out of prison in as little as 16 years, whereas the 3 kids who pleaded not guilty will likely get the maximum sentence of 65 years and they may never be eligible for early release.

    16 years vs. 65 years. I'm thinking that there are 3 kids who made more than one mistake in this incident.

    As if not planning on their predations being resisted and refused matters. They still planned on the predations. And they got what was coming to them.

    Bummer, that folks who loved these idiots must bear the burden of being related to them and feeling the way they do because of them. But, one thing is crystal clear: THEY CAUSED IT. Nobody else did. Certainly not the citizen who refused to be preyed upon.

    Kudos to the judge and jury who "hung" these little bastids. It's what should occur every single time such a thing happens.

    Hopefully, they will each get the 65 years, but it would have been better if they had gotten the chance to meet Jesus DURING the break-in.

    Sorry these kids wrecked their lives. That's what was done and that is who did it. The dead one has no one else to blame either.

    No, the grand prize winner is the one that got shot. These guys are simply tied for runner up, with a lone stand-out who received honorable mention.

    And let "Jesus" cast 'em out, head first ... after a year and a day of buggery, though. Let 'em find out how it feels to be on your knees and helpless, pounded from all directions.

    Although I do not know the facts, I wonder why in the heck these defendants' defense attorneys did not convince them to plead guilty. Usually a DA will offer a deal. Verdicts in cases like these (subject to some twist in the evidence) are usually predictable, i.e., guilty of felony murder.

    Perhaps these defendants were so stupid that they did not heed their attorneys' advice to plead guilty. I hope - for the sake of the Indiana Bar and not the defendants - that the attorneys did not convince the defendants to roll the dice.

    The fourth guy who did plead guilty was also guilty of felony murder (45yrs sentence). Can't imagine it would have made much difference either way. Though, pleading guilty might well have been the more-honorable path for these idjets. I'm sure it didn't occur to them. Very possibly, they resisted the idea of acknowledging their responsibility to the last.
