DALLAS (AP) — Authorities says a 13-year-old Texas boy convicted of murder in the fatal shooting of a Sonic Drive-In employee has been sentenced to 12 years incarceration. Amy Pardo of the Johnson County Attorney’s office says a judge issued the sentence Tuesday following days of evidentiary hearings. Authorities have not identified the teen by name. In October, a jury found him to have engaged in delinquent conduct in the murder case over the May shooting of a Sonic employee who had a fight with his uncle. The boy’s lawyer said social science shows that such prison sentences for juveniles make society more dangerous.
