Teenager charged with violent crime in New Jersey death

When a crime occurs, there is an understandable desire for justice. While most law enforcement officials are committed to ensuring that the appropriate parties are held accountable for their actions, sometimes the desire to make an arrest can result in charges before all the evidence of a case can be fully examined. In fact, it is unclear what evidence supports the allegations against a New Jersey teenager who is charged with a violent crime.

The incident that led to the 17-year-old male's arrest happened during the early morning hours of a day in late July. According to reports, a 29-year-old restaurant owner was making the last delivery of the day with his wife. When they reached their destination, however, they were reportedly approached by the juvenile who is said to have had a gun.

A scuffle reportedly ensued between the man and the juvenile. The former is said to have been shot as he attempted to pull away. Though his wife was injured, the man later died at the hospital. A teenager now faces several criminal charges, including robbery, weapons charges and murder.

A death such as this is always tragic, and the need to hold someone accountable is understandable. However, it is unclear how the juvenile now facing violent crime accusations was connected to the crime. In all criminal cases, there must be sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt to obtain an conviction. Often, people accused of a crime in New Jersey feel unprepared to fully examine the evidence against them, making it difficult for them to appropriately respond to the allegations they face.
