One of the teens who pleaded guilty to murdering Hannah Leflar should learn Wednesday whether he’ll be sentenced as an adult.
The boy can’t be named because he was 16 at the time of Hannah’s death. The teen, now 19, can only be identified publicly if he’s sentenced as an adult.
The decision will come after a two-week-long sentencing hearing in May.
At that time, Leflar’s mother, Janet, said she would never forgive the boy for what he had done.
The maximum sentence under the Youth Criminal Justice Act is 10 years. That’s divided up as six years behind bars and four years served under community supervision.
An adult sentence in this case would carry life in prison without the eligibility for parole for ten years, considering the boy was still 16 at the time of Leflar’s death.
He first entered the guilty plea to one count of first-degree murder in April 2016.
The teen is one of two who was part of Leflar’s murder. The other boy pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in February.
The second teen is scheduled for a two-week sentencing hearing in mid-September.
