In 2012, according to police, two black males murdered a twelve-year-old white female child in Clayton, NJ. They beat and strangled her, and then threw her body in a dumpster. Her name was Autumn Pasquale. The official reason for the murder is they wanted to steal parts off of her bicycle.
The accused were two brothers, Justin, 15, and Dante, 17, Robinson. Defense lawyers arranged a plea deal in which the younger brother agreed to accept sole responsibility and Dante would get off with only an obstruction charge. Defense lawyers then argued that Justin should be treated with kid gloves because he was young and had low intelligence.
Justin was only sentenced to 14-17 years for aggravated murder. He will probably be walking the streets again at age 29. Dante walked out of court a free man. Residents of Clayton, NJ were outraged.
Now, less than four years after Dante was released, he has been arrested and charged with a laundry list of crimes. He has been charged with robbery, burglary, aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child, theft, and conspiracy to commit robbery. Police say he broke into a house in Sicklerville, NJ.
