Crime News That Matters

Bartley transfer hearing on Tuesday:

Kenny Bartley, the teen accused of shooting three administrators and killing one at Campbell County High School, will be in court tomorrow which could determine if he will be tried as an adult or not.

“Under Tennessee law there are certain crimes where a juvenile can be transferred, or placed in the adult justice system. Obviously, homicide or attempted murder would be one of those. A juvenile judge has to look at certain criteria such as the seriousness of the offense.”

Does it get much more serious than murder? If he is tried as a juvenile then there will be no justice for the victims.
