In any event, a person's life should not be defined by what they did at age 11. I really hope that he gets a sympathetic judge.
in general i would agree that a person's life shouldnt be defined by what they did when they were 11, but we're not talking about stealing bubblegum or picking on the neighborhood geek. he killed a sleeping pregnant women execution style. im not sure why he would need a sympathetic judge. theyre not going to lock him up and throw away the key.
