The juvenile defendant is accused of hitting the victim from behind and demanded $300. The victim had no more than $21. The victim stated that the defendant threatened to kill him inasmuch as he had access to firearms. The defendant then stole the victim’s Play Station 3 in lieu of the money. The victim contacted police and the suspect is arrested on felony charges of strong-arm robbery.
RESULT: The defense argued that the client held a minimal role in the incident and convinced the State to reduce the charges. The Court ruled no formal finding of guilt resulting in only a community service sentence and NO CONVICTION!
