Grand jury indicts 13-year-old on attempted murder charge

A grand jury on Thursday indicted a 13-year-old on an attempted murder charge, meaning he will face a possible trial in adult court and possibly be sent to adult prison.

Le'Genius Wisdom Williams of St. Petersburg is accused of shooting a 15-year-old three times after the older teen reportedly taunted him. The victim survived.

It's rare for such a young defendant to face adult charges, but Pinellas-Pasco State Attorney Bernie McCabe has said he thought it was appropriate given the seriousness of the crime.
