Wisconsin teen gets life in prison for killing great-grandmother

A Wisconsin 14-year-old was sentenced to life in prison Monday for his role  in the killing of his 78-year-old great-grandmother.

Antonio Barbeau, of Sheboygan Falls, received the sentence as part of a plea  agreement with prosecutors in which Barbeau agreed to plead no contest to a  charge of first-degree intentional homicide. Barbeau and Nathan Paape were  accused of bludgeoning Barbara Olsen in her home with a hammer and hatchet in  September of 2012. Paape was convicted in a jury trial in June for his role  in the killing.

Barbeau had previously pleaded not guilty by mental disease. A psychiatrist  testified that Barbeau has cognitive issues stemming from being hit by a car at  the age of 10, which might also have affected his behavior.

After the sentence was handed down Monday, Barbeau attempted to read a  prepared statement, but could not finish it after he started crying. His  attorney, George Limbeck, also fought back tears as he finished the  statement.

Judge Timothy Van Akkeren imposed a parole eligibility date of November 24,  2048, which will be Barbeau’s 50th birthday.

“In my 24 years on the bench, I’ve not seen anything of this nature. Not even  close,” Van Akkeren said. “It gives me great sadness to see someone of your age  going into the system … I’m sorry to see this have to happen.”

  1. The US legal system reminds me of the Victorian legal system in the 1800’s in the UK where they hung 13-year-olds for stealing clothes.

    1. Indeed! How could a child be better than it´s circumstances,
      ist Environment, his Family?
      Guns all over, freele to catch one, with examples of Shooting.
      a CHILD never has the possibility to kill- without models showing
      the Shooting.
      And then, the children are rotting in prisons, excuse my harsh words.
      Times changes? `Does they?
