  • WILL FUCCI BE TRIED AS AN ADULT?

    Fucci was charged with second-degree murder on May 10, one day after Tristyn’s body was found.

    Prosecutors have the option of charging the young teen as an adult, and a decision is expected within a few weeks.

    “The state attorney does have the discretion to refer a 14 or 15-year-old for a direct file to be tried as an adult under murder charges,” lawyer Curtis Fallgatter, who is not involved in the case, told First Coast News.

    The lawyer added that the second-degree murder charge is the most severe he can face at the moment.

    “Those particular crimes that carry serious penalties, life in prison, for example, death penalty, capital type cases, have to be returned by a grand jury,” he told the news outlet.

    The lawyer emphasized: “If juvenile sanctions are imposed, that would yield a much more lenient sentence than adult sanctions.”
