Trevor Reese, deadly stabbing suspect, to be tried as an adult

There are 421 comments on the www.2theadvocate.com story from Jun 11, 2010, titled Trevor Reese, deadly stabbing suspect, to be tried as an adult. In it, www.2theadvocate.com reports that:

A 16-year-old boy accused of stabbing an 8-year-old boy to death Thursday should be tried as an adult, a state district court judge ruled today.

Trevor Reese, 16, 13700 Sunrise Way in The Bluffs, was arrested Thursday and booked on first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Jackson Attuso, of Clinton, West Feliciana Parish Sheriff J. Austin Daniel said today.

District Judge William G. Carmichael ruled in a juvenile hearing today that probable cause exists to prosecute Reese as an adult.

Attuso was stabbed repeatedly in the front and back of his body and had his throat cut, Daniel has said.

District Attorney Sam D’Aquilla said Carmichael ordered Reese held without bail and set a June 16 hearing on whether bail should be granted in the case.

D’Aquilla said the judge’s reasons for transferring the case from juvenile court included severity of the crime and the age of the suspect, who will be 17 on July 31.

A grand jury is slated to consider the case Thursday, D’Aquilla said.

Thursday’s attack occurred on a wooded trail in The Bluffs on Thompson Creek, Daniel has said.

Who is Greta?
Read her earlier posts - she was Trevor's friend before he went homicidal. She and her family obviously tried very hard to join the St. Francisville community, but somehow SF failed to welcome or understand them-so they left for greener pastures where everyone "gets" them.

I agree with the last poster. Adult crime. Adult time. He took an innocent child's life. May he rot in Angola for the rest of his pathetic life and rot in hell after that! That sick little bastard deserves no mercy. Who was there to show that innocent child any mercy? I hope they give him the death penalty, that is the help he Truly needs!

Although I completely agree with the fact that the crime was horrific, I think we should all refrain from referring to any child as a monster. It doesn't matter why he did it, nothing will make it better, or bring back the innocent child. But instead of focusing our energy on speculations or saying hateful things I think we should all focus on the families hurt by this attack. Two families lost children on Thursday. Everyone should be respectful and allow those affected time to mourn. My prayers are with both families, friends of the families, and anyone else who has been affected by this crime.
I knew Trevor, we were really good friends and he is not a monster. I am not saying what he did was right or anything and i think he should be punished. But he himself was just a child whenever this happened. Clearly he mentally ill. Wishing for the death penalty on him, makes you no better than him. He was a good kid, never been in trouble. A 4.0 in school. He is not a monster, he is just a very ill person. People should think about the things they say, most of you sound more like monsters than him.

I along with the vast majority of people around the world agree with you, He is just a kid and should never be in an adult court and not punished for life but treated as an member of this human race, a person who like all people can benefit from help...The USA stands alone in the world sentencing youth to die in prison.

No they are not, not even close to "standing alone."

He is being charged as an adult because of his age and the seriousness of his crime. The majority of countries do the same, and trust when I say the offender is going to get a much fairer shake than he would in other countries.

No other place has anywhere near the same rate of incarceration or length of term for youth 16 and younger as USA. many who are first time offenders and/or did not kill but will yet will never get out. 17-18 year olds who are repeat violent offenders are in a different class then those who just turned 16 and serving LWOP.

The real reason for life imprisonment is to protect the innocent. If this young man is mentally ill, as has been claimed by those who advocate something less than LWOP, then for the protection of potential innocent future victims he should be permanently kept out of free society. He gave up his right to freedom when he took the life of an innocent child. Nobody would have dreamed his mental illness would have caused him to kill a child, so now we must respect the FACT that his illness does cause him to kill and keep him away from potential future victims. We owe this to the innocent. That's not a cruel punishment for the crime. That is a common sense solution to protecting the lives of the innocent.

Your ignorance of the law is showing my friend…you have been greatly mislead if you think any a 16 year old that has been convicted of a nonviolent crime will “never get out” for his/her crimes.

Our child advocacy laws are protects our young criminals more than any other nation.

you have no room to judge, you did not know him, i knew trevor personally. trevor was one of the sweetest guys i knew, there is obviously something missing here. you are in my opinion worse than him, by far. they are acting like he is a hardened criminal. he is not, he is a kid who made the biggest mistake anyone can make, he also probably has a mental problem. you want him in jail, and to make an example out of him? he needs help, you will make a monster out of him if you send him to jail, he is not a monster now, you insult him and everyone who knew him by calling him things like baby killer and monster. what happened was horrible, completly horrible, but it is not your place to judge. it never will be your place to judge, and god help me if you try to judge again. you are an ass.

so say trevor has a mental problem which seems very likely, its your place to judge him for it? since i know you dont know him, and i doubt you knwo the victem from the way your acting, also prison was meant for rehabilitation, you just dont seem to think that makes sense because we really want to make criminals angry and more dangerous. but you dont know him, use empathy, believe me i feel horrible about the child, i have friends who knew the victem, and i feel horrible, but that doesnt provide reason to crucify trevor like you are. you want revenge on someone you dont know.
6 years later seeing this still is crazy to me. In school I saw him stab someone in the chest with a pencil because of some misunderstanding.

As his friend were you in denial of how he would turn out?
