CASE ENTRY

Bennett v. Sci

Then-teen supplies gun, sits in passenger seat of getaway car outside robbery-turned-murder at Philadelphia jewelry store in 1990. Jury: Which is first-degree murder. Third Circuit: New trial. Seems likely that, because of bad instructions, the jury incorrectly attributed the shooter’s intent to kill to the teen.
