A recent carjacking in Washington, D.C., attracted national attention because the carjackers who are 13 and 15-years-old were caught on video during and immediately after the crime. There was outrage by many who watched the video and saw that as the Uber-eats driver lay dying close by, the girls were more interested in finding a cell phone.
According to the Daily Mail, the two teens just reached a shocking plea deal even though one of the teens is a suspect in another carjacking from January. The prosecutor ensured ‘they will not be held past the age of 21 nor be placed in a prison facility.’
If the tables were turned, there would be riots in D.C.
According to The Washington Post, the teen’s lawyer Bonnie Lindemann did not indicate that her office would try to transfer the 15-year-old’s case to adult court. Under D.C. law, the 13-year-old could not be prosecuted as an adult due to her age.
