Nicole Kornegay Decision

Nicole Kornegay, at 11 years old, is more a victim of this tragic event than she is a perpetrator of it. The American criminal justice system is not a “one-size-fits-all” system. We give our prosecutors wide discretion to interpret the specific details of each individual case. The decision not to charge Nicole Kornegay shows the State Attorney’s Office exercised their prosecutorial discretion with thoughtfulness and compassion. Today justice was served.

– Cliff Wilson, attorney for Nicole Kornegay
