Man Convicted of Murder as Teen Appeals Life Sentence

Posted: Feb 20, 2018 9:38 AM Updated:

ELKTON, Md. (AP)- A Maryland man who was convicted of murder when he was 16 is appealing his life sentence.

Seth Dallas Jedlicka was convicted in 2011 for a 2009 crime in Chesapeake City. Jedlicka and three others broke into an area home on Nov. 4, 2009, fatally shot a woman, beat her father and held her mother captive while they stole $500,000 in jewelry.

Jedlicka, now 25, was sentenced to life in prison with all but 60 years suspended for first-degree murder and six related felonies, but he says he was too young to have received such a long sentence. Jedlicka and his lawyer, Robert W. Biddle, will argue for a lesser sentence Thursday. Biddle says Jedlicka's sentence is unconstitutional as it was imposed without considering Jedlicka's age.
