This is a very unusual story. I don’t normally deal with this kind of school violence but someone sent it to me and who am I to deny my readers?
Anyway, back in September 17-year-old Eric Schorling was charged with attempted murder after stabbing his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Lambert, in the back with an 8-inch kitchen knife in the halls of Romeo High School. Check out these chilling details…
Authorities said that jealousy motivated Schorling to arrive at the high school that autumn morning with an 8-inch kitchen knife hidden in his right shirtsleeve. The weekend before, Schorling bragged about his plans to friends, Kaplan said.
At school, a female acquaintance asked Schorling what he was doing there. He flashed his knife and stated, “I’m going to stab my old girlfriend.”
As they talked, Nicole Lambert walked to her first-period class and Schorling stabbed her in the back, Kaplan said, missing her heart by one-third of a centimeter.
As Schorling fled the school, another teen questioned his presence there, Kaplan said. “Eric laughed and exclaimed, ‘I just stabbed Nicole in the back,’ ” he said.
Back in the Spring, a plea was agreed to that Schorling would serve at least six years and nine months. But then he escaped from the Macomb County Juvenile Justice Center. Now the deal is off and Schorling wants to take his case to trial. If found guilty he would be looking at a minimum of 10 years. And here’s the best part. Apparently, all the criminal defense attorneys in Macomb County must have attended the same clown college because Schorling’s attorney is just as funny as Andrew Osantowski’s attorney was…
Defense lawyer Arthur Garton said he will present a “solid defense” for his client.
I’m dying to hear this defense. The mind boggles at the possibilities.
As always it was your pleasure.
