Man With Mind Of 11-Year-Old Gets Adlut Sentence

A 20-year-old man described as having the mind of an 11-year-old was sentenced to life in prison for the rape and murder of a Philadelphia waitress.
A jury deliberated for less than four hours before convicting Donte Johnson today for the 2010 killing of Sabina O’Donnell.
Johnson admitted to the attack, telling police that he intended only to steal her bicycle, CBS Philly reported. He said he killed her, because she screamed when he tried to get her bike.
Later, he recanted his confession, which his attorneys said he made because he was mentally challenged.
Johnson maintained his innocence today during sentencing.
How can you clearly say I did anything?” Johnson said when Judge Glenn Bronson announced a sentence of life plus 40 to 80 years for first-degree murder and four other felonies.
“If I did something, I would take responsibility," Johnson said.
