I was a lost and troubled 16 year old soul trying to find my place in the world but always seemed to be looking in the wrong places and doing the wrong things.
In December of 1995, while walking through an impoverished city neighborhood, I, along with an associate Donald Hutson, was walking down a street and saw some people who were not recognizable and decided to rob them. There were five people in this crowd but we only robbed two of them and one victim was shot at but not injured. Subsequently from the incident I was charged with 2 counts of first degree robbery, and 3 attempted robbery for the other three people in the crowd, 2 first degree assaults and 7 counts of armed criminal action. Shortly thereafter, about 30 minutes later and about 8 blocks away we committed another robbery and took the victim’s car driving a few blocks away from the robbery. Consequently, I was charged with kidnapping and armed criminal action as well. In all, I was charged with 17 counts from these incidents due to accomplice liability. The trial for all these charges was held at the same time.
