Oldest juvenile 'lifer' released after 63 yrs

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A man who was sent to jail for a crime he committed when he was just 15 years old has been released following a 68-year sentence.

Joe Ligon was one of a group of drunk teens who went on a robbery and assault spree that ended in the deaths of two people and six more being stabbed.

In 1953, Ligon, who was illiterate, pled guilty to two counts of first-degree murder - although Ligon has claimed he didn't take part in the murders - and was given a life sentence.
