Teen Robber Sentenced

By Marc Moore at 9/24/2002 8:01:54 PM A Houston teenager was sentenced to 35 years in state prison for aggravated robbery of a woman this spring. Read the summary in the Houston Chronicle.

There will be those who bemoan this stiff sentence; however, minors who commit violent crimes serves the same punishment as adults. Face it: these kids know exactly what they are doing and decide to do it anyway. Furthermore, many count on the fact that they are minors in calculating whether to do the crime. Stellar job, jury.
