Earlier today a 15-year-old girl was sentenced in a Washington D.C. juvenile court proceeding to remain in juvenile detention for a period of six years as her “sentence” in connection with the carjacking murder of a Pakistani immigrant and grandfather who died when the girl and one other juvenile carjacked him and killed him in their subsequent effort to get away in his car.

The facts of this story are well-known by now.  Two teenage girls in Washington D.C. — 15 and 13 years old — carjacked Mohammed Anwar, a 66-year-old Pakistani grandfather who was working as an Uber Eats driver.  The older girl was driving the car and attempted to speed away with Anwar still holding onto the driver’s side door.  As the car rapidly accelerated and moved to the left to go around a vehicle stopped ahead of it, the open driver’s side door struck a light pole and violently slammed shut with Anwar’s body being crushed between the door and the vehicle.  The driver lost control while making a right-hand turn at a high rate of speed, causing the car to overturn.  Anwar’s body was thrown clear as the car went out of control, but he struck an iron fence along the side of the road.

The video is set forth below, but BE WARNED the video is very graphic and some might find it disturbing.

The sentence imposed is the maximum possible in juvenile proceedings.  It means the girl will remain in juvenile detention facilities until her 21st birthday.  At that point, by law, she must be released.

The girl’s name has never been publicly disclosed.

Reporting from local media outlet WUSA9, the CBS affiliate in Washington D.C., agreed to not name the girls, or otherwise identify them, in order to be granted access to the juvenile court hearings, which were held remotely via WebExdescribed.  The reporter for WUSA9 the courtroom comments as follows:

The judge called it an “unthinkable crime,” and said it was “incomprehensible” that a child would be so “unfeeling,” before sentencing the older of two teen girls involved in the carjacking murder
