He committed a horrific crime at the age of 13.. “The Killer Minor” is free

Eric Smith was not an ordinary child like his peers, who was dominated by violent tendencies, and he even killed a young child in a very heinous crime that shook the United States.

When he was 13, Smith lured a 4-year-old boy to a forest in New York State , where he killed him with a stone in 1993.

At that time, the case had attracted the attention of the American public due to the young age of the killer and the victim

The minor was convicted at that time of committing a second degree murder , that is, without premeditation, and was sentenced to 9 years imprisonment to life.

The point here is that the convict must serve the minimum sentence, which is 9 years, before requesting parole, to serve the remaining years of the sentence.

 When the release date came in 2002, the victim’s parents opposed the order. Smith has filed 10 parole requests in recent years, to no avail.

Smith will remain in prison until a date no later than November 17, when he is scheduled to leave prison after spending about 27 years in it, after a conditional release decision was made, which  restricts the movement of the released prisoner in a certain geographical area.

Smith is currently 41 years old.
