Galion Teen Bound Over To Adult Court in Shooting Death

The 16-year-old Galion youth charged with reckless homicide in the January 23rd shooting death of his girlfriend has been bound over to Crawford County Common Pleas Court to stand trial as an adult.
Upon hearing all the evidence against Finley Foust, Junior during a Monday hearing, Juvenile Court Judge Steven Eckstein ruled Foust is not amenable to further juvenile care or rehabilitation and that he be subjected to adult sanctions in the death of 17-year-old Lindsey Sligar of Mt. Gilead.

Foust is alleged to have shot Sligar once in the chest with a nine-millimeter handgun during an episode of “horseplay” in his home.

The third-degree felony charge will be presented to the Crawford County Grand Jury April Tenth.

If convicted as charged, Foust faces one-to-five years in prison.

the keyword here is fools........

Why do fools fall in love?

Why do birds sing so gay
And lovers await the break of day
Why do they fall in love

Why does the rain fall from up above
Why do fools fall in love
Why do they fall in love

Love is a losing game
Love can be a shame
I know of a fool yes I do
That fool is you

Why do fools fall in love?

Why do birds sing so gay
And lovers await the break of day
Why do they fall in love

Why does the rain fall from up above
Why do fools fall in love
Why do they fall in love
STILL JUST WONDERING

After so many months gone by, it still doesn't seem like any of you children have grown up and learned anything...calling each other names. The least you can do if you're going to call each other names is to invest in a dictionary or go to www.dictionary.com , but then again you are from El Paso, so I shouldn't expect you to know alot of the English language....you are probably here illegally anyways. So you shut your wet back up! Mother F@#$er!!...You probably dont even know who the hell your talking about...Do you "DUMMY"? And that is spelled with a "Y" not an IE. Get a dictonary.

I don't agree with the "WHITE SENSELESS" part of your comment, since acts of violence happen with ALL races. However, I do agree with the fact that this person needs to be charged as an adult for this crime. First of all, nobody should be playing with a gun if you're not the registered owner and don't have the experience with guns. Secondly, I believe if a teenager commits an adult crime, then they need to do adult time. Don't commit an adult act if you're not ready to suffer the adult consequence. Also, for the people out there who know this person...just because you know him, doesn't make him any less guilty. The fact is, he shot a girl. He's just lucky he's not looking at a life sentence. If I were the judge, I'd lock his ass up and throw away the key.
It's unbelieveable how the teenagers nowadays think that just because they're under 18, the law won't do much to them. They need to get it through their thick skulls that the law WILL do something to them. This case with Finley is just one example.

Oh please try to have me charged. LMAO!! I'd love to see that happen. You need to slow your row and shut the f*ck up. To you, it's a personal issue. For the rest of us, it's a news story that we're commenting on. If you don't like the comments made to this thread, then don't read this thread. Period.
