Child, 12, admits shooting, will be confined until age 21

The 12-year-old boy who killed a man earlier this year will be confined in a secured juvenile justice facility until he turns 21, a judge ruled today.

Coreon A. Jackson could get out sooner, Richmond County Juvenile Court Judge Pam James told him, if he can turn his life around by getting his GED, taking trade classes, behaving and serving as a model for other children.

Coreon admitted on the witness stand this morning that he shot 65-year-old Roosevelt Cowins on March 19 during a home invasion at Mr. Corwin’s Fenwick Street home.
