Carter Strange Case update

August 18, 2013

Judge Robert Hood on Monday sentenced 16-year-old Delarrett Canzater – one of eight attackers in the 2011 Carter Strange beating case in Five Points – to eight years in prison after Canzater pleaded guilty to assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.


Evidence indicated they went to Five Points “to find some wreck . . . a slang word that means they wanted to go out and beat somebody up,” prosecutor Dolly Justice Garfield told Hood.

Apparently, Delarrett, although only 14 years old at the time, was no stranger to law enforcement. The judge could have given him 20 years, but instead chose to only give him 8. He’ll be out of prison in 5 or 6 years, depending on his behavior. Read the rest of the story here, if you can stomach reading The State’s spin on it.
