Earlier this month, 18-year-old murder suspect Autumn Wood was denied youthful offender status. After a Lauderdale County, Ala., judge denied that request, Autumn’s attorneys objected to that ruling, claiming that the denial violated the young woman’s constitutional rights.
More than two months after applying, Alabama teenager Autumn Wood has been denied youthful offender status. She is charged with murder in the March stabbing death of 14-year-old Brooklyn Hollins.
An attorney for teenage murder suspect Autumn Wood requested youthful offender status for his client at her arraignment Wednesday morning. The attorney’s previous request to try Wood as a juvenile was denied by the same judge.
