If it's true that he was being molested, then I say no probation. Neither heaven nor hell wants a pedo in its army. I say give him a medal and lots of TV coverage, maybe others in his predicament will do the same. KFD

why is he staying in jail if he was given probation. If they were jerking each other for sometime why did he just break on this incident. Sounds a little fishy to me.

It really makes me sick to my stomach... What's wrong is wrong...and what's right is right... the judge used he's best judgment... I really feel for that kid.. I hope that he can get through this..

He should have reported the guy when the abuse started, not let it go on and then kill him. If the abuse was ongoing, why did he keep going back to this guy? The judge heard the case and I guess acted appropriately in his sentencing. Your solution is ridiculous.

I watched this WHOLE trail on tru T.V. he said he would do this sex act for this and that and then the car came into play and he had to give him oral sex. now it just does not sound right to me. it sounds like he did what he WANTED to do for what he WANTED from the 55 year old man. it kinda sounds like he gave the 55 year old his body for cars,Money, anything he wanted. I think he should have got locked up not in prison with the big boys but a rehab type deal. If that was you or me we would have got nailed and sent to prison. now what if the boy was 18 years old what would have happened. he stabbed this guy over 50 times WOW sounds like rage and anger to me. Maybe he did something to guy and the 55 year did not give him what he wanted???? We will never know because this 16 year old stabbed and killed this man.

Well, I find again that we agree. Not in every case, but here is one of them. Although, he should have had to spend some in jail.

The kid had an obligation to report him to the police if for no other reason than to protect other kids. Killing him was unacceptable. The kid went willingly to the pervs house, time and time again. It sounds like a domestic battle that went to far. The judge was wrong, period.

This is a travesty of justice! This man took a pickle jar and smashed a man's head in, then stabbed him 55 times. Once again Judge Burge has made a mockery of the justice system. No one made this murderer go over to his house time and time again. The gay panic defense is not justification to take another's life.

Burge should have found him guilty of second degree murder in the first place. This judge is more worried about the feelings of the guilty then he is of the victims or their families. Come election time in Lorain County, we need to get this horrible judge off the bench!

It simply amazes me how one can literally stab someone that many times.....visually that would kill me internally.......I guess I just don't have it in me to understand. But if he truely in fact molested him, an he needed to do something...gosh.....just call the police, an tell them what he had been doin to him....you know? I would think they would believe you, or at least look into it...Truely it is wrong if Mr. Hurley did in fact molest him over a period of time or even once..... but this kid should pay a serious amount of time for killing this man....
