Mercer County Teen Sentenced To Life In Prison

19-year old Lee Anderson was sentenced today to life without parole for 25 years.

He plead guilty last month to murder and robbery.

During today's sentencing, Anderson admits he made a "terrible mistake."

He was 17-years-old at the time of the murder.

    Look Michelle,I have a very close family member in prison for murdering someone.Dont even tell me I would know he's a good kid.I thought the same thing about my family member.It's hard to swallow when you think you know someone and they turn out to be a vicious murderer.I'm really sorry for the hurt you feel...I-hell,my whole family are still feeling that pain,years later.My family member claimed she didn't know what she was doing,either.Took her years to take on the responsiblilties of her actions and even to admit she killed this person.I dont want to hear any crap about what a good person this 'kid' is!

    If you actually knew Lee you would know that he was a good kid, i was firends with him. What he did was wrong but he didnt even realize he did it. So dont start judging someone just by what you see on tv

    Justice was not served. Life without parole should have been the sentence. The man was old enough to know what he was doing when he killed Mrs. Pulliam. This was a very nice lady trying to help him and he killed her in cold blood.

    It makes no difference how old he was when he murdered this woman.It's in his heart.When someone takes another life,why should the victims family have to support them while they lay around in prison for the next 20 years?I just saw on the news he said he knew he had made a 'terrible mistake'.Oh,really.Is that what he calls maliciously stabbing this woman to death-a mistake?What a waste of life.
