16-Year-Old Boy Murders 1-Year-Old Baby, Jailed 90 Years

A sixteen-year-old boy has been sentenced to 90 years in jail for shooting a 1-year-old child to death.

According to court prosecutors, On June 4 2012, the then 15-year-old gang member rode up on a bicycle to a family gathered outside a home in Watts. He drew a revolver and opened fire, killing 14-month-old Angel Mauro Cortez Vega and wounding his 21-year-old father, Mauro Cortez. Dokins, authorities say, mistakenly believed the father was a member of a rival gang because of the color of his T-shirt.

Donald Ray Dokins was charged as an adult and sentenced to 90 years life in prison. His brother, Derrick Washington told the court that his sibling was a straight-A student who wrote poetry. “He’s not a monster" he said, "He’s just a little boy.”
