A Texas judge has sentenced a 12-year-old to7 years in a juvenile detention centre after he removed his ankle monitor and shot a one-year-old baby.
The underage 12-year-old rapper, identified as Lil Rodneyy, was also an alleged Crip and admitted to cutting off his ankle monitor to attend a friend’s funeral. However, he claimed couldn’t recall the friend’s name because he only knew the nickname.
Despite the boy breaking down during his Zoom detention hearing, the Judge, Kim seemed unbothered and unmoved by the sober tears of Roneyy the shooter.
About Rodneyy the 12-year-old boy sentenced to 7 years for shooting;
Kim blasted, “Every time you come in here you cry. You know that, right?” The judge added that “Every single time, you beg me for one more chance.
You swear to God, ‘On my mama’s name,’ ‘I’m not gonna cut off the monitor, I’m not gonna run off.’”
A little digging into the background of Lil Rodneyy shows that he is a result of teenage pregnancy. His grandfather watched after him taking the place of his father after the boy’s father abandoned his family,. The boy’s mother was later sent to prison twice while he was a toddler.
&-years adding to Rodneyys age means he will remain in a juvenile detention center until he’s 19.
Rodneyy’s mother was interviewed after the hearing. She is a single mom who gave birth to Rodneyy when she was 16.
Rodneyy was raised by her father, who lovingly refers to his grandfather as “Paw paw.”
