    Probation? I dont think so, under the 10-20-life law their looking at a minimum 25 years, up to a life sentence. Sad to see someone throw away their life like that.

    Time to grow up. I went to school with these two, and drugs got the best of them.

    19 years old and charged with the felony of aggravated battery and attempted robbery with a firearm, sounds like they have a great future planned for themselves.
    Both are nice looking kids so will likely quickly make many friends in jail.
    What a shame, what a loss over something that did not have to happen.
    Hope the victim is going to recover fully.
    These days nobody seems to be safe from others who intend harm.
