Michigan Man Released From State Supervision After Being Convicted of Murder at 13

A Michigan man, convicted of murder when he was just 13, has been released from state supervision.

Nathaniel Abraham attended his last status hearing Thursday morning in Detroit.

Nine years ago, he was convicted of killing a man. At the time of the crime, he was just 11-years old.

Several people spoke on Abraham's behalf, telling the judge how much he has matured and accepted responsibility for his actions.

Abraham says this is his second chance and that he plans to make the best of it. "What I feel is that you saw something in me before a lot of people did, you know originally. That's why I'm here today for a second chance at life, I'm gonna’ make the best of it," he said Thursday.

Abraham will live in Bay City, where he has a job and an apartment lined up.

He says he also plans to take some classes at a nearby college.
