From WUSA9, where you can read more on the story:

A 15-year-old boy received the maximum sentence possible Wednesday for a pair of high-profile crimes in D.C. last year. A judge ordered the teen to remain in custody until he turns 21.

The teenager pleaded guilty earlier this year in the shooting death of 15-year-old Andre Robertson Jr. while Robertson was sitting on his great-grandmother’s porch, as well as trying to rob Commanders player Brian Robinson Jr. Robinson was shot twice in the leg during the robbery and carjacking attempt.

In court Wednesday, the teen received the maximum sentence, which is commitment until he is 21 years old. He was charged with attempted robbery stemming from the Robinson case, and manslaughter in connection to the Andre Robertson shooting. He was also charged with carrying a pistol without a license.

It was a sentence that left Andre Robertson’s family far from satisfied.

“Lawmakers need to change the rules with these juveniles, period. Life in jail. If they do the crime, they need to do the time,” the victim’s mother, Tyeisha Lucas, told reporters outside the courthouse after the hearing.
