Teen gets 17 years in killing of Autumn Pasquale
Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | September 12, 2013 | Barbara Boyer and Andrew Seidman,

Posted on 09/12/2013 8:55:36 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Justin Robinson, who strangled 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale last year, was sentenced to 17 years in prison, "a gift" the victim's mother said the Clayton teen did not deserve.

Robinson, 16, who had confessed, apologized, saying it was a "mistake." Robinson's mother said that her son was not the "monster" portrayed in the community and that he is remorseful.

Robinson's sentence was negotiated as part of a plea agreement. Had his case gone to trial, he could have faced 30 years.

Too bad the 12 year old never had a chance to be remorseful.

That’s not remorse. Real remorse involves doing everything in your power to make up for the wrong that you did.

It seems that many of these mothers are half the problem. They are always making excuses for their kids.

Sarcasm, right?
He should be hung in a tree next to his murderous brother.

Overwhelming sarcasm. O’Reilly mentioned tonight a murder in Newark that got little attention. I wonder if this has been discussed nationally. Switched to CNN and Cooper was talking about, now get ready, Zimmerman.

17 years? He’ll be out in 7-10. Life is truly cheap and he got the bargain.

Insanity.

So brutally murdering a 12 yea-old girl and throwing her out in the trash is a mistake?

As part of the plea agreement, Robinson will have to serve 85 percent of his term before being eligible for parole — about 14.5 years.

Anything I have to say about this would probably trigger an NSA clerk to pay attention to my email.

All this could have been avoided if Pasquale's parents had only had the John Derbyshire's talk with Autumn. Political correctness turned out badly for the Pasquale family. It's not helping that news programs tend not to identify the race of violent perps any more.

With parole, he’ll be 31 when he hits the streets as a fully developed thug.

If you kill someone you can’t make up for it as far as the victim’s loved ones are concerned.

I wonder why the prosecution took a plea, it sounds like an open and shut case.

Prosecutors must always take into account the odds of an OJ verdict if it goes to trial. Keep in mind this is right after Zimmerman and blacks are pissed.
