A Lexington County teenager has been sentenced to ten years in prison after admitting to stabbing his adoptive mother to death

Van O'Cain:

Sixteen-year-old Hugo Clayton pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter on Monday. Debra Clayton was stabbed in her home in Red Bank in 2003. Investigators say the knife was found under the boy's bed.

Hugo Clayton will be kept in a juvenile facility until he turns 17 in May and then will be transferred to an adult prison.

The boy was adopted from Guatemala.

Prosecutor Dayton Riddle says the boy killed his mother after being required to speak only English on the day of her death. Riddle says the boy had also been punished for --not-- getting up to go to work with his father.

I have less empathy with international adoptions these days. In the past it was most often done to avoid cumbersome (over-) regulation here, or by parents who would have trouble adopting here -- e.g. older ones. But now it seems it's often just another form of political correctness -- e.g. Angelina Jolie.

I used to play at debbie clayton's house as a kid! Me and my bother are were good friends with thier children. They adopted those kids because she was a very nurturing woman who wanted to help! how dare you put the blame on the victim or thier family instead of blaming the little monster who butchered his mother!!!!!
