So sad when I read about someone so young who has totally screwed up his life. Age 15, serving a year to a year and a half....two years later, arrested for armed robbery and kidnapping, now five years later wanted for murder.

It's really sad to hear of

It's really sad to hear of such a tragedy occurring, but it's very disturbing when one person refers to another person as a "thing". Come on good citizens of the CSRA, let's voice our opinion, but let's be civilized with our comments. Remember the GOOD BOOK says "whatever you do (say) unto the least of one of MINE, you do unto ME". The young man is certainly a menace to society, but he's still a human being that God made, and he should be seen as such. We're all sinners saved by grace, and with God there are no big sins or little sins. Let's be civil and intelligent with our opinions. Have a blessed day.

workedforit, it does not

workedforit, it does not appear that Mr. Felton served any time for the second charge at age 17. He is not listed under the Dept. of Corrections as an inmate in the past.

It also appears that his charges were reduced to theft by taking, but Richmond County might want to look for him in Pennsylvania since they allowed his probation to be transferred there before!!

Jonathan Lee Felton , 18, of the 200 block of East Hale Street, theft by taking; Feb. 5: sentenced under the First Offender Act to six years' probation, transferred to Pennsylvania, fined $1,000 and ordered to pay restitution and earn a general educational developmental diploma

Someone knows where this guy

Someone knows where this guy is and should turn him in. There may be a reward as in the past for this type of case the reward was up to $5,000. Does anyone know FOR SURE if they have a reward out on him this time?
