Man Who Shot Teen to Death Pleads Guilty
A man who shot a teenage prankster to death pleaded guilty in West Palm Beach to manslaughter and apologized to the boy’s parents.
Jay Levin, 41, was sentenced to one year in jail, to be served on weekends, and 10 years of probation. He was also ordered to leave the suburban Boca Raton neighborhood where he and the victim, Mark Drewes, lived.
Drewes, 16, and a friend were knocking on neighbors’ doors and running away late at night when Levin said he mistook the teenager for a burglar and shot him.
