    I can tell you that these boys were all in fact guilty. So for those of you who say that they are not can just face the facts. I can't speak for Travis and Brandon, but I do know for a fact that Ryan is a different person now. He deeply feels remorse for what he did and lives with it every day. He made a huge mistake and I thank God that he has realized that what he did was wrong. We all know that many people don't care about what they did and just continue being unproductive members of society even when they are out of prison. Ryan is a good person and will be a changed person when he gets out of jail which I hope will be in 2012. I pray for the old man that Ryan hurt and I thank God that what happened to that poor man didn't turn out worse. That being said, Ryan was a punk back then, but he is not now. Please understand that people can change and Ryan has done just that.

    They are not quilty, i know because i was with them earlier that day and they aren't the bad people that this town thinks they are. there is no evidence that ryan,travis and brandon were the ones that did this so how is this town going to charge them for such felonys when they have no evidence to prove that they did it. this is all wrong and they arent being fair to my 3 friends. they are such better people and deserve one more chance they are 18, they have been in there for 6 months and they have learned there lesson. their only 18 years old, that jail time is long enough to change their perspective on life. I just wish the judge will realize that they are better people and dont deserve all this time when they have no proof that can prove they did it, because they are not GUILTY Please Judge Daughtery. you know they can change, they have been doing great things in jail to show you that they can be good citizens on the streets if you would just give them one more chance to prove to you.

    Good, If they are found guilty, let's see that they are properly punished. That punishment should include incarceration, hours of charity work, and work to more than repay the victim.

    This man that was robbed and beaten was 62 YEARS OLD!!! What cowardly little punks, this is sick, I hope they get their stupid little asses kicked up between their ears while in jail. Apparently someone hasn't done it for them for 18 years now and here we are, surprise, a few more stupid, cowardly, undisciplined kids who can join the "elderly, babies and animal" abuse club. When are we going to stop tolerating this as a society? Those of us who work, take care of our families, and go out to exercise in a freakin park and get beaten by 3 little boys over a cell phone need to start demanding stricter laws and longer sentences!!!

    I think that what we needs is more reinforcements at night in the neighborhood, so there won't be any problems.

    I went to school with Ryan Cross and this really does not surprise me all that much. He has a record and this is just going to be another thing to add to it.
