Shooting Plea

Posted on 4th April 2014 at 16:57

The 16 year-old who was involved in a gang-related shooting last Thanksgiving Day is taking a plea deal, admitting guilt to charges of second-degree assault, unlawful possession of a gun and witness tampering. In today’s Daily News, it’s reported that Gregory Richard Brown, 16, of Longview is being sentenced to 7-1/2 years in prison by taking the deal. Brown faced a longer prison term if he had gone to trial and been convicted, possibly up to ten years for each assault charge. Brown is admitting that he shot and wounded Corey Huebner, 16, after asking the teen if he was “banging” for a local gang. It’s also being disclosed that Brown set up the assault of another teen while he was in the Juvenile Detention facility. He’ll spend the first part of his sentence in a juvenile detention facility, and then will be transferred to an adult prison some time after his 18th birthday.
