If you drive a 15-year-old shooter to and from the crime scene, lie to police about it and then later tell detectives the suspect's name and location of the gun, are you guilty of murder?

That question is one a San Joaquin County jury will begin debating today in the case against Lodi resident Amera Addi.

    I don't know dogs, remember the trial some time ago when the two guys robbed the art gallery, and killed the owner, in Sac? The guy who was with the shooter was waiting in the car and said he did'nt even know his friend had a gun. They both got life.

    Nice try folks, but you know that her lawyer will show the jury that she is only guilty of adding and abetting, and a minor. I, along with the rest of the people that wrote a post agree that 15 years or more would be approprate, however I don`t think that is going to happen. Just got off of jury duty, unless you have served lately, you can`t believe what the defence will come up with. As Clint would say, Hang `em high.

    Mazie, I agree with you 100%. Both should be tried for murder... the 15 year old as an adult.Both should be locked away for life.

    Addi wasn't concerned about her family members when she chose to hang with gang bangers.She drove the shooter to the scene and transported him afterward. Whether or not she knew a shooting was going to happen, did she call the cops when it did? No, it took her two months to come clean. What about Ms. Perez? She didn't have a chance. She was totally innocent and murdered by two gang members who should be considered the same as terrorists.Wish I were on this jury.

    Answer: NOBut she is guilty of ignorance, stupidity and lying.

    A: Yes.Also, if ballistic tests connected the gun to the shooting, I thought that's enough evidence to convict Addi at least as an accessory. She shouldn't go scot-free.One more year and the 15-year old will no longer be a minor. This will catch up with him soon if he didn't change his ways.

    Of course she is guilty of murder. She may as well have pulled the trigger, she is as guilty as the person who did it. And what is up with no charges filed against him? Who cares if he is a minor? He is a terrorist of sorts. I think we need to find out who he is. A woman died and that woman could have very easily been your mom or your sister. Make the gang banger pay for her death. And what is a 21 year old doing with a 15 year old kid? How sick is that? I hope they stick it to her good, really good. Life in prison.

    The answer to the question in the first paragraph is YES.

    Why aren't these people treated the same as Terrorists?
