A year ago, a Lansing teen was sent to a juvenile facility for the murder of Shayla Johnson. Tuesday, Charles Lewis Junior was back in court for a status check. His psychologist and social worker both took the stand, telling the judge about the progress he's made at the Maxey Boys Training School. Where he take classes and participates in group sessions and behavior treatment.
The judge says Lewis seems a lot calmer. And believes he can change, "I'm waiting to see what he's going to do and how he's going to progress.
Lewis gave the judge a letter outlining what he's learned from his time a Maxey. He says he wishes he could change what happened. And doesn't want to live that lifestyle anymore.
Lewis admitted to a couple of problems since he was sent to Maxey, like talking to a peer about gang rules, but says he's learned from his actions and is focused on being a positive leader.
