Brogan Rafferty

Craigslist suspect to be tried in adult court; teen cooperative with authorities:

16-year-old Brogan Rafferty has been charged as an adult in the Ohio craigslist slayings. Rafferty is accused, along with 52-year-old, Richard Beasley of luring 3 men to their deaths with a phony ranch hand job offer on craigslist. If his case was to go to trial he could be looking at life without parole.

Now normally I’d be all for charging a 16-year-old accused of murder as an adult but there has been so little about Rafferty’s involvement released that I’m not quite sure right now. So far the only thing I really heard about him was that he may have dug the shallow graves that the victims were found in. His father claims that Beasley led him to believe they were drainage ditches.

Anyway according to most reports it sounds like that Rafferty is going to enter into a plea deal in exchange for testifying against Beasley. I wouldn’t be surprised if that plea came with limited jail time if any.
