This is the story, it happened around the beginning of December. So anyway my dumb ass 14 yr old cousin went with 3 or 4 of his older friends (all are 18 yrs old) and they drove up to some store at 4 in the morning. My cousin says the one of the older kids gave him a gun, mask and some gloves and told him let's go rob this place. He says they also told him that they would prolly get $60,000 in cash and they would split it 4 ways so he could get up to $15,000 ugh and of course he says his eyes lit up just at the thought of that. So they went in. My cousin had the mask/gloves on and the gun (which had a trigger lock and no bullets) and so they went into this store which was open and they asked for money but the lady that was their said she didn't have any money and that it was all in a safe and she didn't have the key. SO then 3 of the 4 guys (including my cousin) jumped into their car. The 4th guy apparently did not end up going in. And the 4th guy is the one that gave my cousin the gun, the mask and gloves. Apparently the gun also belongs to the 4th guy's father. So anyway the 4th guy goes his own way. The 3 other guys (including my cousin) went another way and their driving along and then they get stopped by the police cause they didn't have their headlights on. By this time, I'm sure the cops already had a APB out for 3 guys (one of them armed) so of course the cops get suspicious and get them out and search the car and find the mask which was under my cousins seat and the gun was under another seat. The police then detained the guys and brought the witness from the store and she ID'ed my cousin as the guy with the mask and the gun. I think she must have recognized him by his clothes and what not. So they arrested my cousin and another guy. The 4th guy who went his own way is not saying anything to the police but he got a lawyer now. My cousin basically sang to the police and told them everything. I think he was prolly all nervous and whatever cause he told them he wore the mask, the gloves and had the gun. I was told by his mother that he didn't point it any one though. So now, the court wants to try him as an adult and my cousin has been charged with 5 felony counts which are Attempted Armed Robbery, Illegal possession of a firearm while under the age of 18yrs old, Possession of a firearm with intent to commit a crime.....Their are also two other counts but I can't remember exactly what they are. I know one of them is a count against him for wearing the mask. So thats the story....And Currently he is in a juvenile home and has been their for like 2 or 3 weeks now and he has a court date in January. Today he had a bond hearing but the Prosecutor got the judge to change his mind and keep him in Juvy until his January trial date. So My question is What type of punishment is my cousin facing with these type of felony counts?? Can they really try him as an adult?? I know these are serious offenses but for the most part he has been a good kid. Just got mixed in with the wrong crowd. But I'm pretty sure he is going to get some type of punishment. But will it be jail time?? btw, this happened in Richmond, VA. AND this is also his first offense. I think that should count for something... CLIFFs: 14yr old cousin went with some older friends (18yrs old) and they attempted to rob a store. My cousin had a gun, mask and gloves on. He is now being charged with Attempted Armed Robbery, Illegal possession of a firearm while under the age of 18yrs old, Possession of a firearm with intent to commit a crime and two other counts that I don't remember. They want to try him as an adult as well. How fuckin screwed is he??????
