September 12, 2013 Woodbury, New Jersey (News12, ABC NEWS) – he New Jersey teenager who strangled a 12-year-old Clayton girl last October was given the maximum sentence in the crime Thursday.
Justin Robinson, 16, was sentenced to 17 years in prison for the death of Autumn Pasquale. The maximum sentence was worked out in a plea bargain.
Family and friends of Pasquale plan to protest outside the courthouse today, arguing the sentence is not long enough.
The teen has admitted to luring the girl into his home and strangling her. After she didn’t return home, a massive two-day search began. Pasquale’s body was later found in a recycling container next to the Robinson’s house.
A New Jersey teenager called his actions “a big mistake” as he was sentenced Thursday to 17 years in state prison for fatally strangling a 12-year-old girl whom he had lured to his home with an offer to trade bicycle parts.
Justin Robinson, now 16, pleaded guilty last month to aggravated manslaughter in a deal with prosecutors who were facing some major challenges in the case, including a lack of physical evidence to determine whether he or his brother Dante Robinson killed Autumn Pasquale in October 2012.
Robinson, who looked mostly straight ahead during the two-hour sentencing hearing, must serve more than 14 years before he is eligible for parole.
“I’m sorry. I never meant for this to happen,” he told Judge Walter Marshall. “This was all a big mistake.”
