Episode 3: Reckoning
The courts face their toughest test - how to deal with children who kill. When he was twelve years old, Sharron Townsend was arrested for shooting a homeless man in the head. Now fourteen, he is facing justice. In Florida, children can be transferred to adult courts at the discretion of the State Attorney, so there is no upper limit on Sharron’s sentence. How will the Judge decide his fate?

Sharron isn’t the only teenage killer in the Jacksonville justice system. Jeremiah Hill shot a man during a gun trade when he was thirteen years old. Now the justice system must decide how best to protect society.

Child crime is the key battleground in the election race to be Jacksonville’s next State Attorney. As voters go to the polls, will they choose to stick with incumbent Angela Corey’s tough approach or vote for change through challenger Melissa Nelson?
