17 Yr. Old Rivera Was The Suspect That Pulled The Trigger



Prosecutors: 17-year-old pulled trigger

Last updated on: 12/4/2007 5:57:08 PM by NBC2 News



MIAMI: The Grand Jury indictment of four Lee County men accused of k!lling NFL player Sean Taylor reveals 17-year-old Eric Rivera was the one who pulled the trigger.

The four were formally charged with first degree felony murder and armed burglary with an a.ssault and firearm on Tuesday afternoon.

The indictment also indicates suspect Jason Mitchell was wearing a mask or hood to conceal his identity while committing the crime.
Mitchell, along with Charles Wardlow and Venjah Hunte, was denied bond in a Miami courtroom Tuesday morning.

Prosecutors also say the three men are on what is called "suicidal precaution." Prosecutors said that after being evaluated by a doctor each would be under suicide watch and all three were wearing equipment that prevented them from hurting themselves.

Each suspect appeared separately before the judge via closed circuit TV. The judge denied bond for all three and they are expected to be back in court for their arraignment on December 24th.

Hunte, Wardlow and Mitchell are expected to plead not guilty.

Rivera, the alleged triggerman, is expected to be in court in Miami Wednesday morning, according to his attorney, Wilbur Smith.

Police say a fifth suspect could still be on the loose.

Authorities say the suspects broke into Taylor's home early November 26th, but that the k!lling was unplanned because the four didn't think the football star would be home at the time of the burglary.

Grand jury IDs shooter in Taylor slaying

By MATT SEDENSKY, a.ssociated Press Writer
15 minutes ago



MIAMI - The 17-year-old suspect in the death of Sean Taylor was accused Tuesday of firing the shot that k!lled the Washington Redskins safety. A Miami-Dade grand jury identified Eric Rivera as the gunman in its indictment.

ADVERTISEMENT

Rivera and his three co-defendants were indicted by the grand jury on charges of first-degree felony murder and armed burglary.

Charles Wardlow, 18; Jason Mitchell, 19; and Venjah Hunte, 20; were ordered held without bail during brief court appearances via a videoconference from Miami-Dade County jail. The three, who stood silently during the hearing, will remain at the jail under suicide watch after Judge John Thornton Jr.'s ruling.

Rivera, still in custody in Fort Myers, was expected to be transported to Miami-Dade on Tuesday night and make a court appearance Wednesday. One of his attorneys said the grand jury's identification of Rivera as the gunman was expected.

"This does not come as a surprise," said Sawyer Smith, who along with his father Wilbur represents Rivera.

The 24-year-old Taylor died Nov. 27, a day after he was shot in the bedroom of his home. Police have said he was a victim of a botched burglary.

"I think he's in disbelief over what occurred," said Wilbur Smith. "His expression to me was that 'I can't believe this kind of thing happened.'"

Asked how he would defend his client, Wilbur Smith said simply: "Stay tuned."

Attorneys said the four young men were agitated.

"He's very distraught," said Hunte's attorney, Michael Hornung. "He's scared."

Hornung offered glimpses of his client's possible involvement. He said Hunte was the only suspect with a valid driver's license and behind the wheel at least part of the time. He said Hunte did not have a gun and did not know his friends' plans.

"Just a bunch of friends that evening said they were going to the East Coast, and he went along," Hornung said. "He had no idea whatsoever what was going on."

Hunte is cooperating with police, his attorney said, and would tell them everything he knows.

Probable cause affidavits for Mitchell and Rivera said the two confessed to participating in armed burglary. According to the reports, Mitchell and Rivera admitted entering the home and said someone had a gun and shot Taylor, but they didn't identify who. Police and attorneys also have said some of the young men confessed, though they wouldn't elaborate.

Wardlow's attorney, David Brener, did not return a phone message.

Wilbur and Sawyer Smith have said there is a fifth suspect, though police would not confirm that.

The court proceedings came a day after Taylor's funeral, which was held at a university arena and drew about 3,000 mourners. Among those attending were NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, 300 members of the Redskins organization and actor Andy Garcia, uncle of Taylor's girlfriend, Jackie Garcia.

Richard Sharpstein, Taylor's former attorney, said the athlete's family was grateful for police and prosecutors' work, but that it did little to lessen their loss.

"They're still grieving, and no amount of justice could ever replace Sean to them," Sharpstein said. "However, they'll support this prosecution and wish the state attorney the best in achieving the most severe punishment to these people."

Accused Taylor shooter wants plea deal

MIAMI - An attorney for the 17-year-old accused gunman in the k!lling of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor wants to work with prosecutors to resolve the case.
ADVERTISEMENT

Sawyer Smith, who along with his father Wilbur is representing Eric Rivera, said Wednesday his client was admitting no wrongdoing yet.

"When the State Attorney's Office is ready, we would like to sit down and begin discussion with them so we can move towards a resolution in the case that has the best interest of all parties in mind," Smith said. "We want to minimize the impact of case resolution on the Taylor family and find a result that's in the best interest of justice."

Smith added: "Plea negotiations are typical in criminal cases. However, we don't know when or if that will occur."

Circuit Judge John Thornton Jr. denied Rivera bail Wednesday in his brief appearance via videoconference in a Miami-Dade County courtroom. His three co-defendants were denied bail a day earlier.

All four — Rivera; Charles Wardlow, 18; Jason Mitchell, 19; and Venjah Hunte, 20 — have been charged with first-degree felony murder and armed burglary. Their arraignments are Dec. 21.

Richard Sharpstein, Taylor's former lawyer, said he expected them all eventually to be "severely punished."

Taylor died Nov. 27, a day after he was shot in the bedroom of his home. Police have said the 24-year-old player was a victim of a botched burglary.

Smith said he was happy Rivera had been moved to Miami and had his first appearance in court. He said he understood it most likely would be some time before prosecutors would speak with him.

"When they're ready and in a position to discuss this case with us we're looking forward to that day," Smith said.

Wardlow's attorney, David Brener, distanced his client's actions from those of Rivera and said he expected to go to trial.

"I believe that the acts of Mr. Rivera, who was the shooter of this case, constitute an independent act," Brener said Wednesday. "My client never contemplated that Mr. Rivera was going to arm himself or use lethal force against Mr. Taylor."

Smith said the defense attorneys in the case have a history of working together, but he said he understood the grand jury's identification of his client as the alleged gunman puts him in a unique position.

"The other boys may be in a position to separate themselves somewhat from our client," he said. "However, under the felony murder rule, if it can be shown that they're involved in it, if they're involved in the burglary, then it's not a defense that they were not the one that pulled the trigger."

Fu*k a plea deal. If Sean snuck up on them while they were robbing the joint and he turned and pulled the trigger then that's different. But the fact that this pus*y heard someone in the bedroom, kicked the door open and popped off 2 shots means he knew exactly what the fu*k he was doing.



...and fu*k that ugly b*tch on myspace talking about free her punk @ss brother like he is being wrongfully accused or some sh*t.

Taylor suspect linked to earlier break-in
Posted on Thu, Dec. 06, 2007
Digg del.icio.us AIM reprint print email
By Miami Herald Staff Report


Authorities believe Jason Mitchell, one of four men charged in Sean Taylor's murder, broke into Taylor's home a month before the k!lling.


One of four men arrested in connection with last week's slaying of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor was involved in an earlier break-in at the football player's home, say law enforcement sources familiar with the case.

The sources say investigators have tied Jason Mitchell, 19, to the scene of the Nov. 18 break-in. At that time, Taylor's home was unoccupied.

The intruders ransacked the home, Taylor's family reported nothing missing. Investigators discovered a damaged air vent and a knife on a bed in one of the rooms.

The Nov. 18 burglary was reported by Sasha Johnson, Taylor's sister, who frequently stays at the home.

Mitchell had been in the home in October when he attended a birthday party for Sasha Johnson.

Taylor, a former star at the University of Miami, was shot on the morning. of Nov. 26 during an attempted burglary at his Palmetto Bay home. He died the next day at Jackson Memorial Hospital from the leg wound, which severed his femoral artery.

Days later, authorities arrested four suspects -- including three teenagers -- in Fort Myers and charged them with the slaying of Taylor.

Along with Mitchell, police arrested Eric Rivera Jr., 17, Charles Wardlow, 18, and Venjah Hunte, 20. Each has been indicted on charges of first-degree murder and armed burglarly.

All four suspects were denied bond and remain behind bars in Miami.

One of accused heard noises and left; alleged shooter pulled him back in

MIAMI -- One of the four men charged in the shooting death of Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor heard noises during their burglary attempt, but the alleged gunman pushed them forward, saying he was the one making the noises, according to Taylor's attorney.

Jason Scott Mitchell -- who allegedly entered Taylor's home early on Nov. 26, along with Eric Rivera Jr. -- said in his statement to police that he left the house when he heard noises, but Rivera had him go back in, saying, "that was me you heard," attorney Richard Sharpstein said.

When informed of Sharpstein's account to The Washington Post, Mitchell's attorney, Landon Miller, said, "That sounds consistent with what I know."

Sharpstein told The Post he got the information from statements made by the four defendants prior to their arrest Nov. 30 and provided by law enforcement sources.

Mitchell, 19, and Rivera, 17, were picked to burglarize Taylor's house because they were familiar with the layout after allegedly being in there for a burglary eight days prior to the shooting, according to reports. Two of the other accused, Venjah K. Hunte, 20, and Charles Kendrick Lee Wardlow, 18 -- apparently remained in the car, Sharpstein said.

But another attorney close to the case, who requested anonymity, said "there's additional information out there that maybe all four men were in the house at one time or another" the night of the robbery, according to The Post's report.

A report in The New York Times cited sources confirming the connection between the first burglary and the attempt made eight days later. Cash and football memorabilia belonging to Taylor were discovered in the house of at least one of the defendants, the sources said. Sharpstein told The Times he knew of the connection before Wednesday.

"This wasn't a random burglary," he said. "This was a dime-a-dozen wannabe criminals who had been to the house before. They stole his life thinking they were going to steal a few dollars from him."

A Miami-Dade grand jury indicted all four on charges of first-degree felony murder and armed burglary in Taylor's death. Rivera, identified in the indictment as the shooter, will be tried as an adult; their arraignments are scheduled for Dec. 21.

The grand jury alleged that Rivera shot Taylor, who died a day later after taking a bullet in the thigh, when he was startled to find the Redskins' Pro Bowl safety in the house. The grand jury also alleged that Mitchell had worn a hood over his head to disguise his identity during the burglary attempt.

At least one of the defendants had been to Taylor's house last month, Sharpstein said. A relative of Charles Wardlow had dated Taylor's sister, Sasha, and was at the house for her birthday party. Jason Mitchell's twin brother, Scottie, said Jason mowed the lawn at Taylor's house, according to The Miami Herald.

Hunte's lawyer, Michael Hornung, said that his client had never been to the house before the night Taylor was shot, and that he had no idea why the other defendants had gone to the house in the first place.
