So, I handled a case today with a 19-year old defendant. As in, born in 1990. I was having a hearing on charges of Attempted Murder from an incident in which he (okay, allegedly) shot a guy "thrice" (and yes, that's what the officer put in the report) over a dice game.
Last week this dude was indicted on a Murder charge.
Some time ago, he was indicted on charges of Assault in the First Degree. Each incident was entirely separate, no relation between any of them.
Did I mention he's 19 years old?
Suddenly, I don't even feel guilty about the pile of laundry I'm ignoring.
