If Judge William Walsh of Onondaga County, NY, offers you a deal, you take it!
That's the lesson Anthony Stewart, 15, learned the hard way. Facing overwhelming evidence that he committed a robbery, Stewart had the chance to plead guilty and be sentenced as a youthful offender. He refused, and Judge Walsh threw down a two-to-six-year sentence in a juvenile facility -- and a lifelong felony conviction. Do you think the judge gave the right sentence for this seven-cent robbery?
