While they're taking him away, make sure to whisper to him that you'll take care of his family. Give him something to think about.
They had initial charged him with Malicious Wounding- (WV law is 1-5yrs).
However, I told the prosecutor if the kid agreed to pay for medical bills (~40k), take anger management, and rehabilitation courses, I would not push the sentencing.
I believe in second chances, but only if he is willing to take responsibility and gradually progress towards being more responsible and mature. He will likely spend less than 2 years, assuming he takes the plea.
