10 Years Or Life? Quite A Range On The Punishment Spectrum

I’m sure some red diaper doper baby will overturn this ruling, but if you can’t put a bullet in the head of this little shit, then you do what you can.

Ten years is not enough time to rehabilitate a Lawrence County boy charged with killing his father’s pregnant fiancee, a judge ruled yesterday.

“A more horrific crime is difficult to imagine,” Common Pleas Judge Dominick Motto wrote in ruling Jordan Brown will stand trial as an adult. State police say Brown, then 11, placed a shotgun to the back of Kenzie Marie Houk’s head and pulled the trigger last year.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Brown could be the youngest person in American history to be sentenced to life in prison without parole, legal experts said.

“I’m in shock,” defense attorney Dennis Elisco said. “This is certainly the lowest point of my 29-year career. We’re just devastated.”

Motto denied a request by defense attorneys to move the case to juvenile court. Had the case been tried there, the state could not hold Brown, 12, beyond his 21st birthday.

During hearings this year, Motto heard conflicting testimony from experts on whether Brown could be rehabilitated.

“It is not likely defendant can be rehabilitated prior to the expiration of the juvenile court jurisdiction,” Motto wrote. “(Brown) is an individual with significant personality problems that are complicated by his presenting to people in authority a version of himself that does not include the negative aspects.”

Brown is charged with the February 2009 shooting deaths of Houk and her unborn son, Christopher. Police say Brown shot Houk as she lay in bed in the family’s New Galilee home, and then left the house to get on the school bus.

Defense attorney David Acker said he and Elisco are considering an appeal.

“Lowest point” of your 29-year career. And lawyers wonder why they’re so hated.

This story took place a few counties away from me, and I’m pretty sure I commented about this back in February of last year. Too bad I’m still in the year of 2006 when it comes to moving my older crap over to this place. 😦
