Look in the corner of ESPN News. They are now reporting the confession.

Re: Police Detain 4, Look for 1 More (Shooter Confesses, Video of Assailants, Motive)

The following explains what sentences Sean Taylor’s assailants may face if convicted of murder. It does not discuss the admissibility of any evidence (e.g., the confession), possible defenses, or other charges that may be filed against the assailants (e.g., weapons charges). It's a pretty quick and dirty analysis (I spent just 15 minutes putting it together), but for what it is worth.

Sean Taylor’s Killer

Pursuant to Florida Statutes § 782.04(1)(a)(2), “[t]he unlawful killing of a human being when committed by a person engaged in the perpetration of, or in the attempt to perpetrate any … burglary … is murder in the first degree and constitutes a capital felony, punishable as provided in § 775.082.” According to § 810.02, “burglary,” includes “[e]ntering a dwelling … with an intent to commit an offense therein.” The planned offense need not actually occur; the mere intent to commit an offense is sufficient to sustain a conviction of burglary. Theft is, of course, an offense and, pursuant to § 812.014, “[a] person commits theft if he or she knowingly obtains or uses, or endeavors to obtain or to use, the property of another with intent to … deprive the other person of a right to the property.”

Assuming that the shooter entered Sean Taylor’s home with the intent to commit theft, he committed burglary. Moreover, because the shooter unlawfully killed Sean Taylor during the course of the burglary, he committed murder in the first degree.

According to § 775.082, a criminal defendant convicted of a murder pursuant to § 782.04(1)(a)(2) shall either be put to death or receive a life sentence without the possibility of parole. In short, if Sean’s Taylor’s killer is convicted under § 782.04(1)(a)(2), he is either a dead man walking or will spend the rest of his life in prison.

The Accomplices

Pursuant to § 782.04(3), “[w]hen a person is killed in the perpetration of, or in the attempt to perpetrate any … burglary … by a person other than the person engaged in the perpetration of or in the attempt to perpetrate such felony, the person perpetrating or attempting to perpetrate such felony is guilty of murder in the second degree." This “felony murder” rule essentially provides that if a defendant commits burglary and, during the course burglary, another person is killed, such defendant is guilty of second degree murder. The felony murder rule may seem to work harsh results (i.e., convicting a defendant of murder when he only intended to commit a burglary), but supporters argue that it is reasonably foreseeable that a murder may occur during the course of a burglary and, therefore, any such murders should be imputed to all parties to the burglary.

Here, as you may have already guessed, all of the shooter’s accomplices who took part in the burglary may be charged with and convicted of felony murder under § 782.04(3).

Furthermore, pursuant to § 782.04(3), felony murder is “punishable by imprisonment for a term of years not exceeding life [in prison].” Although defendants convicted of felony murder may be paroled and receive less than a life sentence, the accomplices, if convicted, will likely be eligible for Social Security by the time they see freedom.

They have more than one confession and they have the gunmen.

First and foremost, I'm just very glad it appears they have the TRASH BAGS that commited this horrible crime, off the street.

Next, in due time they will pay the price for the crimes commited. Hopefully to the full extent of the law.

That Wardlow guy is Sean Taylor's sister's boyfriend's brother.

Sean->sister->boyfriend->wardlow

The other inmates will have "fun" w/ these teenagers in prison.

It's a damn shame. They are so young. Young black men killing other young black men. I'm glad that I made the choices that I made in life to keep myself from turning into a statistic. I can only pray for their families. Hopefully they can turn their lives around but I honestly don't see them making it in prison that long. They shouldn't have tried to steal what wasn't theirs. They shouldn't have killed that man, they shouldn't have killed Sean Taylor. Not saying I wish they would've died that night but I wish the good guy had won that fight. I just hope the good guys win the war.

Hail To The Redskins............Hail Sean Taylor !

This doesn't help me at all, in fact it makes me even sadder. It's now five lives wasted, over nothing. Shit, if they had just asked the man he probably would have given them a fucking tv. I'm even more devastated today, I need a drink.

I am struggling with something and I hope that someone here can help me. I have heard various sentiments that are similar to this. Why is it worse that it is black guys that are accused of this horrible crime? Part of Wilbonehead's commentary was "black on black crime." I understand that the majority of murder victims are killed by another member of their own race (this is true across the board according to FBI statistics). But is it any better or worse that his murderer is of a certain racial background? If any good can come of this then let it be that we all stand together outraged at whoever commited this crime not seperate along racial divides. Sports gives us a chance to unite (black guys cheer for Cooley, white guys cheer for Moss and we all cheer for SmootSmack). I hope whoever did this is executed.

Re: Police Detain 4, Look for 1 More (Shooter Confesses, Video of Assailants, Motive)

I feel worse now than I did at any point this week, this development doesn't bring me closer as it just brings me despair. I read just about every article written, from Whitlock to Wilbon and even the DC Sports Bog report on what Cowturd said, and while this proves just about all of them wrong it brings me nothing because Sean Taylor is still gone. And what's the lesson in this? Somebody please help me, because I'm just about losing my mind over this.

As a Buccaneer fan my heart is with Redskin nation! I lived in North Virginia for 10 years and became friends with a lot of Skin fans.

Sean Taylor, R.I.P! You were coming into your own my friend! I'm glad that they found the killers and I hope they let everyone in the prison know that they orphaned a child and ended the career of a stellar defensive back that was only 24 years old and working his way to elite status!

Doesn't this whole thing just make football look so small in comparison!

My prayers are with his family and with all of you in the Skin nation because I know how I would feel if one of mine fell this way in a senseless crime! God, I'm sooooooo mad! Although I'm a Bucs fan I graduated from U of Miami in '01 and Taylor is a Cane. Nuff said! They'll go to prison but that won't be the justice that they'll serve. They killed one of the good guys and they'll pay for it.

Well as a black man it hurts me to see young black men killing one another. After all the shit that went on in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Other black people were killed ( Medgar Evers, MLK, Vernon Dahmer) so I have the right to vote, go to good schools, eat at nice restaurants, stay in nice hotels. Just basic civil rights. I guess you have to be black to understand. So when I see these pieces of shit killing another black man that's made it, it makes me sick and angry. They just have no sense of history and it comes from the household.

But regardless these thugs need to be put to death. I'm tired of this shit. I'm tired of all the black on black crime. Everyday I can pick up the newspaper and see another innocent victim being carjacked or killed. Especially here in DC. Except this time it's a famous athlete that we all root for. But the reality is it happens all the time.
