While many people believe the girls should be charged as adults, it does not seem to be what the prosecutor has in mind.
The Washington Post sat-in on the virtual hearing for the killers on Wednesday, and report that the prosecutor had told the judge they were expecting to give attorneys plea bargain offers in the next day or two.
Additionally, D.C. Police Commander Ramey Kyle told FOX 5 that they are investigating one of the suspects involvements in another carjacking in January.
Fox 5 reports that D.C. laws prohibit a 13-year-old from being tried as an adult. At 15-years-old, the D.C. Attorney Generals Office could petition for a case to be transferred to the adult court system. Court sources told FOX 5 that usually happens during the first hearing.
The reporters who sat in on the hearing have not indicated that any attempt was made to transfer the case into the adult system.
