The Skylar Neese case is something everyone has been talking about for a while now, and since Shelia Eddy's plea, that has a lot of you talking about if her sentence was a fair one.
Eddy received life in prison with mercy. 5 News received a lot of feedback from a lot of you on why she got the possibility of parole, and it's all because of a U.S. Supreme Court case. Because Eddy was charged with an adult crime while she was still a juvenile, Miller vs. Alabama states to not give a child mercy for committing an adult crime is unconstitutional.
A lot of you think her life sentence was the best punishment for her, and she ultimately got what she deserved.
"If they're guilty, they're guilty. The age doesn't matter," said Matt Matthews, of Salem.
