According to a report by Sleekgist, a 12-year-old rapper known as Lil Rodney has been sentenced to 7 years in prison for shooting a 1-year-old baby in the US.
A Texas judge, Judge Kim, found Lil Rodney who is a juvenile Crips gang member guilty and has sentenced him to spend 7 years in a juvenile detention center.
The detention hearing which took place via zoom in September 2020, on the day the suspect turned 12 has now been released.
The judge continued: “You were here for… you’re on probation for arson and that is from 2019. And then, we got all kinds of promises. Most recently, I let you go. You keep cutting it [his ankle monitor] off, I’ve always let you go because you’re still young. I mean, you’re 11-years-old, right? So, I didn’t want to keep an 11-year–old in here.”
But the judge told him that every time they let him go, he keeps violating the conditions of his probation.
Judge Kim said: “So, you keep on running away, we keep on getting you back in here, make you stay a couple days, you promise me you’re not going to cut it (ankle monitor) off, and you cried a couple times about coming back here.
“And then, this last time we let you out…”
The judge then asks another participant of the Zoom call: “Mr Spence when was then last time we let him out?”
Spence replied: “He cut his monitor on 8/14 of this year.”
The judge then addressed the 12-year-old telling him that after promising he wouldn’t cut off his ankle monitor, he did it again.
udge Kim then showed the boy a picture of himself holding a gun
“I know 11-year-olds aren’t supposed to have guns after they’ve been accused of shooting a baby.”
