FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida (AP) -- The man whose killing of a 6-year-old girl once made him the youngest person in modern U.S. history sentenced to life in prison accepted a plea deal Tuesday in a robbery that occurred while he was free on probation.
Lionel Tate is shown in court in 2004, when he cut the deal that freed him from prison.




1 of 2






Lionel Tate, 21, is already serving 30 years behind bars because the robbery of a pizza delivery man violated his probation in the murder case.
Under an agreement with prosecutors, Tate pleaded no contest to a robbery charge in the May 2005 pizza holdup but will serve no additional prison time.
Defense attorney Jim Lewis said the 10-year sentence on the robbery charge will run at the same time as the probation violation sentence.
"This is definitely a good outcome for him and hopefully it's not the end," Lewis said. He said he will continue to press to reduce Tate's total sentence to 10 years.
Tate was 14 when he was sentenced to life in prison for the 1999 killing of Tiffany Eunick, which happened when he was 12. His lawyers initially claimed the girl died accidentally when Tate imitated pro wrestling moves he had seen on television.
An appeals court overturned his first-degree murder conviction in 2004 after determining it wasn't clear whether Tate understood the charge. He was freed from prison under a deal in which he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 10 years' probation.
If Tate had been convicted after a trial of the robbery charges, he could have been sentenced to life in prison again. He is tentatively scheduled for release in May 2031, according to the state Department of Corrections.

Hey... the 'dumb ******' defense worked for Wesley Snipes. Is it so surprising that it would work for a murder rap?

come on, the nig nog accidentally killed a kid when he was 12 fucking years old. We all do stupid shit when we are kids but it doesn't mean you should be locked up for life because of it.

Now that doesn't excuse him robbing a pizza guy but he shouldn't get more than five to ten years for that anyway.

Be realistic folks.

There is a big difference between accidentally killing someone while trying to act like a TV wrestler than going up to someone and stabbing them in the heart.

He's not a murderer for accidentally killing someone.

I am saying..I knew what Murder was by the time I was 10....I think he had a really poor defender. It should have been accidental homicide from go. I remember when I was not much older than him seeing stories on tv about kids that killed a sibling or friend in after seeing the same thing in cartoons..most of those were considered accidental..

French Fries are missles, .08 is DWI, selling pot makes you a dangerous drug dealer who supports terrorism... It's just the way the sissies have made the world.

Not if the Feds have anything to say about it.

Hemp oil could run diesel engines, and hemp seeds could feed people, hemp cloth to clothe them, blah blah blah....

It really is the solution to the "oil" problem, maaan.

Henry Ford made a hemp car, the body panels were hemp resin and it ran on hemp oil. Big oil playing their card again, and won.

Sorry to burst your bubble on this, but that's an urban legend. The car was a soy car, not hemp. He learned how to make soy fuel and plastic from George Washington Carver.

I'm sorry sir, I don't understand your post.

If you mean that the soy stuff was a myth, then let me correct you. I've actually seen film of Ford hitting a soy-plastic car panel with a hammer to show how it doesn't dent or scratch.
