The headline is a little misleading. It’s more like charges have been reduced from first degree murder to involuntary manslaughter in the death of 11-year-old Sage Aragon from Idaho. If you’ll recall she was the girl who walked a mile in an Idaho blizzard after the car she was riding in broke down. Her father, Robert Aragon, let her walk off into the blizzard to her mother’s house.
The charges of Aragon and his cousin, Kenneth Quintana, carry a max sentence of 10 years.
I have no problem with these new charges because I don’t think Aragon acted with malice, just stupidity.
Thanks to Laine for the tip.
