WARSAW, Ind. (AP) — A 15-year-old Indiana boy who told a judge he “made a really bad choice” was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty in his stepfather’s shooting death.

Kosciusko Circuit Judge Rex Reed agreed to a plea deal in which the teenager agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in exchange for prosecutors dropping charges of murder and aiding murder. Reed recommended that the last five years of the sentence be suspended while the boy is on parole.
