If you’ve been following this site for a while you may remember the story of Robin Kittrell. He was the teen from Whitewater High School in Georgia who brought a cache of weapons to school on the first day of classes allegedly to prevent a Columbine-line situation from happening.
The weapons cache consisted of…
…a 4-inch switchblade knife discovered in Kittrell’s front jeans pocket. Among the weapons were a a Colt .38 Officer’s Model revolver, a Colt semi-automatic 22 pistol, an M1 30 caliber carbine rifle, a 22 caliber long-range rifle, a Ninja-style sword, flex-cuffs, and two speedloaders for the revolvers.
He pleaded guilty to the charges against him and was sentenced to 10 years which consists of boot camp, two years in juvenile detention, one year of intensive probation and the rest on normal probation.
Kittrell’s attorney is requesting an early release for him and to be treated as a first offender. First offender status would allow Kittrell to have his record cleared after completion of his sentence.
The prosecution opposes both requests.
The judge will rule on the requests once Kittrell himself appears in court.
As much as I feel for the kid he shouldn’t be released until he at least completes any psychological counseling that the court ordered.
