It is worth noting, FL charged all four as adults, including the 15-year old.
Always follow your fatherly instincts, your gut is never wrong when it comes to family!
No surprises here. Anyone who’s even played Cops & Robbers knows that break-ins are usually committed by people who have been in the home, and are often friends or even family.
The four youths had a plan there. I wonder, what is it they planned to do with the family afterwards, the girl and her Dad knowing them from school, almost certainly would recognize them.
I hope the judge ponders the same question at sentencing.
