The 15-year-old who delivered a fatal sucker punch killing 59-year-old John Weed at a fair last year after he declined to give him and his 16-year-old brother one dollar is going to be provided with "anger management" and "education" after Frederick County judge Julie Stevenson Solt decided he should be tried as a juvenile.

From The Baltimore Sun, "15-year-old guilty of involuntary manslaughter at Frederick fair to be placed in behavioral modification program":
The 15-year-old who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of a Mount Airy man at the Great Frederick Fair last year will be placed in a long-term behavioral modification program.

The juvenile landed the final punch that killed 59-year-old John Marvin Weed, according to the state. His 16-year-old brother is also accused of assaulting Weed and is facing two counts of second-degree assault in juvenile court. He awaits trial.

[...] "These programs provide resources such as monitoring of medications, anger management, social skills, education, behavior modification programming, family therapy, individual therapy to name few," [Will Cockey, spokesperson for the state's attorney] wrote.

"In the juvenile system, this is the best we can do for the family," State's Attorney Charlie Smith said after the hearing, according to the release. "It's also what is right at this time for the offender given his status as a juvenile. Nothing will bring back their loved one, but I hope that they can begin to heal a little more now that this part is behind them."
Indeed, all this teen needs is a proper "education" and training in "social skills" so he can realize killing people for not giving him one dollar is wrong.

I wonder if they'll even inform the public when he's released considering they've kept his and his brother's identity a secret?
