First Guilty Verdict for Jane Creba
So I kept up to date on the Jane Creba murder trial day by day as it went by and we all know your innocent until proven guilty but in the end, if any of these boys get off, it'll be a shocker. I honestly believe not one of these men will beat this case. Even if they didn't pull the trigger or if they weren't involved, anyone that may have slightly just been in the area and charged with this young girls murder will not in my opinion be found innocent.
So my thoughts of course turned out to be true as the first suspect J.S.R, 20 years of age went to trial and learned his fait last week. J.S.R. appeared surprised as he stood in the prisoner's box and heard the jury foreperson declare him "guilty" of second-degree murder.
His is the first of three trials of nine males accused in the infamous Yonge St. slaying of the 15-year-old Riverdale Collegiate student. The jury also convicted J.S.R. of five weapons charges and two counts of aggravated assault in the wounding of two of the 12 males who faced off outside the Foot Locker store on crowded Yonge St., just north of the Eaton Centre.
