Louis Jourdain may be tried as an adult

Feds Want To Try Jourdain As An Adult:

For those of you who may not remember Louis Jourdain was arrested in connection with the Red Lake shootings back in March. He is also the son of Red Lake Tribal Chairman Floyd Jourdain Jr. He is alleged to have been some kind of an accomplice to Jeff Weise. Not a lot of information has been released about his case because he is a juvenile. Since the federal government has jurisdiction over the Red Lake Reservation he would be tried in federal court and the feds want to try him as an adult. If he were to be convicted as a juvenile he’d be free at the age of 21. He is 17 now. If he were to be convicted as an adult he would be facing life in prison. A hearing to determine his status is scheduled to take place this week.

UPDATE: I found an interesting bit of information from this article from the Pioneer Press…

Sources with knowledge of the federal investigation have said that Weise and Jourdain wrote e-mails back and forth in which they planned the shooting spree.

Those sources have also said there were to be additional targets besides the school.
