After an outcry from the community, a D.C. carjacker who happens to be underage is going to jail. There had been doubt (see below) the carjackers would serve time at all. Comments from officials in D.C. (see below) were shocking because they insinuated that the girls would not be severely punished for what they did:
“The 15-year-old would not be charged as an adult. You know, obviously, this is a tragic case, and, you know, charging this person as an adult [who’s] a juvenile … does not bring back the lost loved one in this case.” – Acting D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee III
The 13-year-old girl who was involved in the senseless killing of UberEats driver Mohammad Anwar (pictured below), 66, a Pakistani immigrant and grandfather accepted a plea deal and will be jailed until she’s 21. Her accomplice is just 15-years-old. The girls are both charged with second-degree murder while armed.
