Court Reverses Murder Conviction of Pre-Teen Boy Tried as Adult

Paul Gingerich was 12 years old when he and his friend shot and killed a man. Gingerich was initially charged with murder but pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. The conviction has been reversed and Gingerich, believed to be the youngest person in Indiana to be sentenced as an adult, will now go back to juvenile court.
