first of all, Amanda IS a great kid. I am glad I had the chance to get to know her. Yes, what the two of them did was stupid and a very sad tragedy, I still feel the authorities should look at the life and up bringing to determine what charges are made. I do not know Addison personally but I do know the family and they are also good people. My prayers are with all involved!

Both of them, Amanda and Addison, are really nice. What makes me mad most about this is that the mother of the kid that died wasn't notified by the police when they found the body, she found out when she read the Macomb Daily. Not only that, but the guy's girlfriend was harrassed and screamed at by the New Baltimore police when they searched her house.
I have never been so appaled by the police around here (and thats saying something) then I am right now.

It doesn't matter on how great Amanda or Addison is. They should of realized the actions they were being put under. They shouldn't have sold drugs in the first place let alone liquid morphine how stupid? So I believe that they should totally take any punishment that is set on them. A young boy died for this. But it is sad that their life is gone in a blink of an eye.

Although selling drugs to a 18 year old "kid" is stupid, reprehensible, and should be punished the bottom line was the "kid" took the drugs and that's what killed him. He should have some personal accountability in his own death. Amanda and Addison didn't make the drugs and didn't seek this kid out; he found them, bought the drugs, ingested them, and consequently died. Yes they should be punished for what they did, sell drugs, but they didn't murder this boy.

For the record 6 months ago Amanda was Ms Bayrama, had a scholarship to college and was well on her way to being a successful and positive member of society. If the greatest purpose of the Criminal Justice System is rehabilitation then Amanda is a perfect candidate.

First of all, where in the hell do you get liquid morphine? Common sense would lead me to believe there is a doctor somewhere behind these two. They made a mistake and had no idea that they would indirectly be responsible for some poor kid's death. Compassion people find this damn doctor, it is he/she who should have known better than to give something like this to cereal box chemist.

Are you saying people who steal and as a result of the choices they made someone loses their life, the punishment should be less severe if considering the upbringing because these two people came from "good families"?????????

Sincere you do have a point. The jails are overcrowded. If anyone were a candidate for some time of rehabilitation. Amanda would be. I'm sure if this will be tried by jury. All will be taken into consideration. Amanda was in every club available in school, She volunteered, She got a great scholarship to a great school. Great grades, She was also in Jazz band, reg. band won numerous awards. She achieved so much. I believe through character witnesses this will all help her. She made bad choices and these choices have consequences. Again she did not make this boy take these drugs. Why when someone passes away as a result of the ultimate bad choice, does it make them have to be unaccountable. God rest his soul. but really. please?

No I am not saying that they shouldn't be punished what I am saying is they are both young kids who did something stupid and yes a child died in result of their actions, which again is very upsetting. I just think the judge should take a look and see their backgrounds. For God sakes she teaches sunday school. I know this girl very well she is not someone that would EVER hurt someone intentionally.

You obviously don't know her very well. She hasn't taught sunday school since she started doing every drug her and addison could get ahold of. and I hope to God justice is served despite who addison's father is and despite idiots like you who think they're good people.

Obviously you don't know here THAT well since she hasn't taught sunday school in over a year, about as long as she's been doing every drug her and addison can get ahold of and getting other people into hard drugs. I hope to God that justice is served despite who addison's parents are and despite idiots like you who addison and amanda have snowed to believe they're good kids.

This is really horrible.
But, you know what.
I know they thought "Oh man, if we give this drug to them, what would happen?". Because I mean Amanda is so smart. She would think that, typical thing to think. Because who does Liquid Morphine these days? They should be set with the kids death too. Because, they gave him the drug, if they are as smart as you people say they are they would of thought about what I just established. They would of wondered if it was gonna put him in harm or not. They sold it, they should get settled with the punishment. I'm sorry that they don't have a social life anymore, and when they do it's known for killing that kid. And it doesn't matter what age you are. If your old enough to buy Liquid Morphine and sell it, and it kills the guyYou should be able to take whatever time you get. Because it would be just unfair to the others who are in jail right now who killed someone but didn't really do it. And if they get away, it just shows all little stupid kids can do this.

Well they sold illegal drugs to a drug user.
It doesnt matter that these were "good kids" all that really matters is the sentancing guidelines for this illegal sale of drugs.
It also doesn't matter that she was in a great college or she was a teacher or anything else.
No - What really matters is the facts:
They SOLD a drug user ILLEGAL drugs and he overdosed on them leading to death.
So why would you want these 2 obvious hardcore drug dealers - liquid morphine - walking the streets, you think probation, and a slap because they were good kids?
Well times change and obviously they did too, for the worse, I say maximum punishment for them both.

i think everyone here needs to get their facts straight before commenting on the situation. charlie's mother did not find out from the newspaper, and i could go on correcting everything said on here but it would be futile. it is none of your business.
none of you know what you are talking about, none of you truly know the people involved, and frankly, i'm glad you don't. nobody but charlie's girlfriend, family, and friends need to be discussing this situation.
you can sit there, all high and mighty in your computer chair and type away on an internet forum, but you did not feel the emotional impact of the situation so don't pretend for a second that you know what it's like. truth is, after you comment here, you will go back to your daily lives of unimportant bullshit while other people are in turmoil over this situation.
assigning and assessing blame is the job of the court system, and they are taking care of it. it is not your job to determine whether addison and amanda deserve the sentencing they are receiving. it is not your place to judge anyone in this situation.
you all point out that so-and-so was a good kid, but good people don't give up a silver platter they've been handed and trade it in for fifteen bucks and 20+ years in prison. they did what they did, what's done is done, and sadly, none of us can change anything.
all we can do is mind our own business.
