MARTINSVILLE - A central Indiana teenager convicted in a school shooting that injured a former classmate was sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Sixteen-year-old Michael Phelps appeared before a Morgan County judge Friday in the March 25 shooting of 15-year-old Chance Jackson. His sentencing in the county seat of Martinsville took most of the day.

Phelps left the Morgan County Courthouse without comment after learning his sentence of 35 years - 30 in prison, five on probation - for attempted murder. It's the culmination of a school shooting case that forever changed Martinsville and victim Chance Jackson.

..................


The judge also cited as one of the aggravating circumstances in this case - the fact that Phelps fashioned a weapon while in jail. Phelps' attorney even said his client was hard to control and he even though he told him he needed to be a saint in jail, he wasn't. In fact, shortly after the sentencing, prosecutors filed seven additional charges against Phelps, stemming from his behavior while in jail.

Those charges include intimidation, obstruction of justice, and causing battery with bodily injury. Prosecutors say while in jail, Phelps threatened witnesses, including one who was beat up the day before his original trial.



I'm sure that he will leave jail a model citizen and not some super jacked up criminal who will probably rob and kill a convenience store clerk when he gets out.  Guys like this need to get the elecrtic chair

Those are going to be hard years. When he gets out, he is going to be pretty beat up for his age. Still, another 10 years wouldn't hurt.



I wonder how much time he must serve before release?

And he's going to get more prison time of top of that for getting one of the witnesses beaten.

It sounds like the whole family needs to be in jail.

Don't worry, he probably won't last a third of those 35.

He might think he's tough but when he gets to the real deal prison he will get bent over and be made to understand what tough really is.

Prison will reform him and when he gets out he will be a model citizen!

He will be out in 2 on good behavior.

Phelps' mouth is a guarantee he will not be leaving prison in a vertical posture.

A older gentleman of my acquaintance who I consider very wise says that you always need to leave a person enough room to turn around.   When I see a case like this, I wonder if there are any absolutes in the area of human behavior.
