Paul Gingerich to be sentenced in 2010 killing

– An Indiana teenager previously sentenced to 25 years after pleading guilty at age 12 to helping kill a friend’s stepfather is scheduled to get a new sentence.

Fifteen-year-old Paul Gingerich is scheduled to be sentenced Monday in Kosciusko Circuit Court after his previous conviction and sentence were thrown out by the Indiana Court of Appeals. A plea agreement announced in December could allow Gingerich to leave a juvenile prison this summer.

The plea agreement calls for him to remain under state supervision for 25 years. It allows that sentence to be served in a group home, community corrections, on probation or on parole if he’s well-behaved or in a maximum-security facility if he’s not.

Gingerich was one of three juveniles charged with killing 49-year-old Phillip Danner in April 2010.
