Teen Who Killed Trooper's Retired K-9 Gets 23-Year Sentence
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Eighteen-year old Ivins Rosier walked into court on Friday, facing widely divergent prospects for his future.
Two months earlier, a jury convicted Rosier of killing a Florida Highway Patrol trooper's retired police dog, during an armed burglary.
Rosier was just 16 when he and two others broke into the trooper's home. Rosier, on an ankle monitor after being arrested for another crime, shot the trooper's retired K-9 named Drake.
The dog later died, in spite of exhaustive efforts to save him.
"The drugs and alcohol affected me ... truly it made me something I wasn't," Rosier explained to the judge Friday.
He said he got caught up with the wrong crowd.
School staff from the jail testified Rosier got straight A's and was a leader among students at the jail.
"I've seen him stop fights," said Chuck Stamm, a part-time pastor with Youth for Christ, who ministers at the jail. "There's a lot of (Creole-speaking) kids in there, and they'd be lost without him there."
Rosier was charged as an adult, but being under 18 at the time of the crime, Judge Robin Rosenberg had the option of giving Rosier a Youthful Offender sentence of six years or less. That's what Rosier's lawyer requested.
But Rosenberg ruled that was not appropriate, given the nature of Rosier's acts.
With a youth sentence out, the case fell under the state's 10-20-Life law.
For Rosier, that meant a mandatory sentence of 20 years for one of the three counts against him.
Judge Rosenberg ended up sentencing Rosier to 23 years in state prison.
"Obviously, the family is disappointed," said Rosier's attorney, Jack Fleischman, who vowed to appeal.
Prosecutor Judith Arco called it "an appropriate sentence." In court, she had called the prospect of a youth sentence of 6 years or less "woefully inadequate."
