Onondaga County Family Court Judge Michael Hanuszczak today sentenced a 16-year-old to 18 months of confinement for the killing of a 51-year-old man.
The sentence was the maximum the judge could have handed down to the teen, who was recently found guilty of second-degree manslaughter in the beating death of Michael Daniels. The boy was 15 at the time of the incident and has maintained his innocence since his arrest at the end of May.
The judge, who is required by law to sentence a juvenile delinquent to the "least restrictive available alternative consistent with the child's needs and best interests and the need to protect the community," said he made his decision based on a variety of factors.
Those included a sentencing recommendation from the probation department, as well as a review of the boy's school records, which showed a history of truancy and suspensions that involved threats and intimidation of his teachers, he said.
Hanuszczak ordered that the 16-year-old not be given credit for the time he has served at the Hillbrook Juvenile Detention Facility while awaiting his trial and sentence.
An OCFS intake specialist attended today's hearing, and explained in court that the teenager will be transported to a "reception" facility in Brooklyn within the next two weeks. He will then undergo a series of tests, including psychological and psychiatric examinations, to help determine his risk level and the appropriate state facility to best treat his needs.

So, is he a Native-black Savage?
18 months ? What a joke. The thug will kill again as soon as he is released.
Daniels was standing alone on the corner of West Brighton Avenue and Cannon Street when he was approached by at least two teenagers and beaten to death. Several witnesses testified that around seven or eight teenagers were present during the incident, and that the beating happened after someone suggested the group play a street game called "knockout."
He is just getting more OJT now.
Judge gives teen maximum 18 month sentence for killing of 51-year-old man in 'Knockout ' case
so hes out within three weeks for Good Behavior???
I’m beginning to believe that being approached by a group of black teens on the street is a good enough reason to use deadly force all by itself.
The judge gave him the maximum, which is nothing, and it’s pretty clear his hands were tied. What’s the point of having judges if they’re forbidden from keeping monsters off the streets ?
I guess “hate crime” enhancements never apply to blacks.
HOW could any ....
where do rules like this originate?....at the obama’s whitehouse dining room table???
Only if the rest of the community plans on MOVING out of town while the perps in jail...
County Judge, so perhaps county law, otherwise it would come from Albany. The problem is that the laws for juveniles amount to a slap on the wrist. If the crimes are heinous, there should be no distinction between a child or adult. The feral animal didn’t just steal a pack of Juicy Fruit gum.
Sons Of Barack's!
If someone over the age of 12 lacks such self-control or cannot understand it's wrong to murder someone
