Michael Phelps, the teenage boy who last month was found guilty in the March 25th shooting of Chance Jackson at Martinsville’s West Middle School appeared in court for sentencing today.

A Morgan County judge sentenced the 16-year-old to 35 years in prison, but suspended five years of that sentenced. With credit for “good time”, Phelps would be eligible for release after serving 15 years.
