Teen Heather Trujillo gets 6-years suspended sentence at youth offender program after helping beat sister to death

A teen and her boyfriend from Johnstown, Colorado claimed that they were acting out the video game Grand Theft Auto 4 when they kicked, karate chopped, and body slammed 7-year-old Zoe Garcia. The two teens that attacked Garcia were her half-sister Heather Trujillo and her 17-year-old boyfriend Lamar Roberts.

Garcia later died at the hospital as a result of the beating she received from her sister and Roberts. This week, a judge in Weld County Colorado handed down a suspended sentence to Trujillo for her part in the beating death.

Trujillo will be sent to a youth offender program where she will serve a 6-year sentence rather than spend time in prison. The charge originally leveled against Trujillo and Roberts was child abuse resulting in a death. Trujillo pleaded guilty in May and agreed to testify against Roberts as part of a plea bargain.

The mother of both Zoe Garcia and Heather Trujillo, Dana Trujillo, asked the judge to be lenient in the sentencing of Trujillo according to 9News. The mother said, “I already lost one daughter. She made a huge mistake and she paid a huge price. My family hasn't had a chance to grieve for Zoe because of all this. We haven't been together, haven't got any time to express how this has affected us."

The prosecuting attorney in Trujillo’s case asked the judge for the maximum sentence because of the brutality of the crime and because Trujillo could have stopped it. Robert’s first appearance in court will be at a preliminary hearing on July 10.

Since when could you body slam in Mortal Kombat??
post #76 of 176
are you serious?
i remember when i was younger my mom used to blame mortal kombat on things that my brothers would do. but i'm pretty sure when my brothers were 10 and 12 they knew not to beat someone to death.

must be some stupid teenagers if they can't tell when they are actually harming someone.

what is this world coming to?

I call bull**** on you. If you get high or drunk in the first place, you're doing something stupid. If you ever put so much of a substance in your body to lose control in the first place you're doing something stupid.
Just because you don't want to do something stupid like that when you're high or drunk does not mean you wont after the fact. When you're high or drunk you don't think. Simple enough.

I also think there comes a point when we can't use the whole "it's the parents fault!" Really, it does get old after awhile, and it sounds stupid when you say it. These kids were old enough to have known beating someone up is a no no; it's not parenting, it's cultural morals. Seriously, a forty year-old man kills his wife and blames it on GTA. "OMG OMG! Don't blame video games! Blame the parents, it's their fault!" Really now, people? Come now. Garbage in, garbage out. I will give you that people should be able to identify fantasy and reality, but some people mentally and emotionally can't. These kids however, were utter morons.
