HE DESERVES TO BE IN JAIL ELIZABETH WAS A SWEET LOVING GIRL I DIDNT KNOW HER PERSONLY BUT I WAS FRIENDS WITH ONE OF HER BFF'S.THE STORIES SHE TOLD ABOUT ELIZABETH I COULD JUST TELL THAT SHE WAS A GIRL YOU WOULD WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH.
HE HAD NO REASON TO KILL THE SAY IT WAS AN ACCIDENT OR SOMTHING BUT WHENEVER YOU HAVE A FULLY LOADED GUN AND YOUR FOOLING AROUND WITH IT THAT JUST SHOWS HOW SMART YOU REALY ARE.......
THEY SAID IN THE NEWS PAPER THT HE WAS GONNA GET 4 TO 14 YEARS I THINK IT WAS I THINK THEY NEED TO GIVE HIM THE WHOLE 14 YEARS IN PRISON TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE HAS DONE..I SWEAR IF I HAD CONTROL OF THE SITUATION WELL YOU WOULDNT WANT TO KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO BECAUSE ITS TO HORRIABLE.....I KEEP HER DAD FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN MY PRAYS AND IF HER DAD IS READING THIS MY MOM KNOWS HOW IT FEELS TO LOSE A CHILD MY BROTHER HER CHILD WAS HIT BY A TRAIN BUT HE SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS

Heres the thing, the system sucks, but we vote these people in, so if you dont like the outcome, at election time, vote, ask questions, he wont get the 14 hell get time for being a model inmate, and then he can start fresh to some extent again, not fair Elizabeth never even got to get her drivers lisc, not go to prom or home coming, nothing,,, so its ot fair, but election time is right aroud the corner,

And what does the election have to do with it? The charges were filed, the case presented, and it was THE JURY that found him guilty of the charge he will be sentenced on. With that, the law only allows so much he can be sentenced with and there are guidelines in place for that. It's the system that's messed up and it all stems from Springfield and the supposed elected leaders we have put their for decades that do little more than take care of themselves and family and friends.

It's the system that we have to work with that is the problem, not the people that have to work within it.

I agree with both of you, but you have a State Atty that is elected and a Judge that ate elected officals, so to a point Mississippi is correct, I agree they sytem is messed up I work in corrections, he wont do 14yrs hell be also in prob protective custody, becasue of his age and what he did, and he will be the model inmate and get out...
He'll do everything he needs to do and do what he is told... Do I think its fair Hell NO , but its what we call the system,

What ever happened to the boyfriend? I know this was a LONG time ago but I don't recall or remember if he was convicted as an adult or teen.

Thats what happens when you have a dope smoking teen slut like elizabeth hooked up with a dope smoking teen guy like austin and they break into houses together. now if he would just hang himself in jail the world would be rid of BOTH filthy turds and we could move on in a better world.
