If you’ve never heard of the Dunbar Village case it’s one of the worst stories I’ve ever posted if not the worst.
Back in 2007, a group of teens pulled a home invasion of a mother and her son in the Dunbar Village housing project in West Palm Beach, Florida. Not satisfied with just robbing them the group not only gang-raped the mother but forced her son to have sex with her. Then they threw cleaning products on them in order to try to get rid of any DNA evidence.
Four teens were arrested for the atrocities. Three of them got life sentences. A fourth, Avion Lawson, got 30 years. Lawson got 30 years because he rolled on his homies otherwise he probably would have met the same fate.
Now Lawson is saying that his sentence was unfair because he claims he was forced to rape the woman at gunpoint by the group’s leader, Tommy Poindexter.
Tough shit. The gang-rape of a mother where six suspects have never been brought to justice is unfair. The emotional scarring that her son will probably have for the rest of his life is unfair.
Now that I think about it 30 years is unfair. It should have been much more. He knew what he was getting into.
