Despite his tender age, Pittman was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Yet his case has attracted international attention after it was revealed Pittman was addicted to Zoloft, a controversial anti-depressant. Some believe the young boy was not in control of his actions and shouldn't have been held responsible. And even more believe keeping him locked up is cruel and unusual punishment - as evidence by the fact a growing number of complete strangers have been flocking to visit him at the maximum-security prison where he is lodge. Duprey will join me to discuss this highly-charged case.
