A 13-year-old Jefferson County boy says he knows what he did was wrong, but says it was an accident and he never intended to hurt anyone when he shot his toy airsoft gun at a friend, who was hit in the eye.
The kid made an absolutely dumb mistake. However this is not something that the government, most especially a prosecutor needs to be involved in. I had a run in with a dick prosecutor, it’s not fun. He and the other boy are still friends, from the description is was rough housing that went a little too far.
Mr. Prosecutor sees a way to make a name for himself and this is the result! Someone once said, “It takes a good prosecutor to convict a guilty man, it takes a GREAT prosecutor to convict an innocent one.” Even with records sealed, it will seriously screw with this kids life.
