PONTIAC, Mich. -- Nathaniel Abraham, who lost his freedom as a child, is gaining it as a man. A judge released Abraham from all state supervision on Thursday, more than nine years after the then-11-year-old used a rifle to shoot and kill a man outside a Pontiac convenience store.
The 20-year-old man who stood before Oakland County Probate Judge Eugene Moore for his final status hearing on Thursday bore little resemblance to the scared boy whose feet couldn't touch the ground while he sat at the defense table during his 1999 murder trial.
