Haymond Burton Jr., 19, is on home detention after serving two and half years in adult facilities, pretrial jail and five different prisons on a second-degree assault conviction. Pictured is a tattoo Burton has gotten while in prison. He was charged as an adult for attempted murder and handgun violations as required by Maryland law. His assault conviction should have left him in the juvenile system if not for the law requirement.
