Keaira Brown was only 13 years old when she killed Scott Sappington Jr. in an attempted carjacking. She’s now 16 and going to prison for life without the possibility of parole for 20 years.
The Kansas City Star reported that Brown told the judge at her sentencing on Thursday: “I’m a kid, too.”
She added: “Now I feel like the state is taking (my life), and nobody cares but my family.”
Yep, pretty much. I certainly don’t care about you being locked up for life after you fired a bullet into Sappington’s head at close range, killing him.
