Mesa teen in MySpace killing gets 20 years:
I don’t know how I missed this one since it happened last month.
Anyway Hughstan Schlicker, the Mesa, Arizona teen who killed his father with a shotgun when his access to MySpace was cut off, was sentenced to 20 years in prison last month. He was looking at 22 years on the charge of 2nd-degree murder.
Schlicker entered a guilty plea back in May.

Teen accepts plea in murder of father over MySpace:
I originally posted about Hughstan Schlicker here. He was the 15-year-old boy who killed his father last year in Mesa, Arizona because his father wouldn’t allow him access to MySpace.
Yesterday he pleaded guilty to second degree murder which should give him a sentence of 20-22 years. I’m curious to know why prosecutors didn’t pursue first degree murder charges.
So what if he’s only 16 now. He brutally and cowardly shotgunned his father to death all because he wasn’t allowed to go on MySpace. This kid deserves nothing less than a life sentence.
