Because all three killers were 15 when they beat McMichael, all were released after no more than 36 weeks in juvenile detention. Their sentences included credit for roughly 24 weeks they'd already spent in custody before the manslaughter sentencing
Kelly and another of McMichael's three killers, Billy Chambers, both have been convicted of new felonies since inflicting the brain injury that led to the death of "Tuba Man" on Nov. 3, 2008
Kelly's first felony after killing Edward McMichael was in 2010, when he was convicted of second-degree robbery. Seattle Municipal Court records show Kelly also has a pending case for obstructing a police officer from a 2011 incident. That was filed March 2.
The other killer who is a repeat felon, Billy Chambers, is now at Stafford Creek prison following convictions for second-degree assault and hit-and-run with a Crown Victoria. Police also described him as an active gang member in 2010.
Urquhart said when officers arrived, "[Chambers] bragged how his lawyer got him off with only three months after stomping 'Tuba Man' to death. He went on to say that his lawyer would get him off of these charges as well."
SEATTLE -- One of the three men responsible for the beating death of Seattle icon "Tuba Man" Ed McMichael pled guilty Wednesday to a 2012 murder in Bellevue.
Ja'mari Alexander Jones, 21, pled guilty to second degree murder for the shooting death of 30-year-old Deshawn Milliken inside a popular Bellevue bar.

1. Our system is all jacked up.
2. Everyone on ATS would be up in arms if a police officer did us all a service and shot one of these animals dead.
15 year olds that stomp a man to death aren't "kids". They're murderers. And that's proven by their behavior since then.

As an aside note it seems worth it to add that the "tuba man" was white, his killers are all black. So apparently some young black men do get treated well by the justice system.
