I should have said he did not plead guilty, he plead non guilty, he is being charged for breaking into a home and shooting the brother, which he said he did not do. He has an identical twin brother who was not available during the trial. The two brothers said on the witness stand that it was one of the twins. The jury found him guilty, the the brother was shot in the leg. I guess I don't understand how a jury can convict without a reasonable doubt when it was brought up that they are identical twins.
He is currently in Redwood City jail in California. Thank you.
