INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – A local 14 year old boy tried as an adult and sentenced to 25 years will now have his sentence appealed by the state attorney general.
Paul Gingerich of Kosiusko County pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in 2010 when he was 12 which was later reversed. Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller announced that his office will appeal the ruling. They believe Gingerich should have been tried as a juvenile instead of an adult.
Now it’s up to the Indiana Supreme Court to decide whether to uphold the sentence.
