Man, 33, convicted of murder at 13 charged with drug crimes
PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit-area man who was convicted of murder at age 13 has been charged with selling heroin and methamphetamine.
Nathaniel Abraham now is 33 years old. Bond was set at $100,000 during a court appearance Friday in Farmington Hills. Outside court, attorney James Galen says his client isn’t “holding up so well.”
The Oakland County sheriff’s office says investigators seized meth, about $3,100 and digital scales at a house in Pontiac.
Abraham faces drug charges in two communities. A court hearing in Pontiac is set for Saturday.
Abraham was 11 in 1997 when he was accused of fatally shooting a stranger in Pontiac. He was convicted at age 13. He was released from state supervision in 2007 but has had subsequent legal problems.
