Jonathan Rowles, 15, sits in a Collier County courtroom moments before the verdict is decided about his juvenile case on Friday, January 4, 2013 in Naples, Fla. The Judge found Rowles delinquent, the juvenile equivalent of guilty, of manslaughter. Although the judge did not believe Rowles intensionally killed his mother, he did believe he was negligent because he understood how to use the gun, as well as the consequences of pulling the trigger of the gun. Rowles will remain free until his disposition, the juvenile equivalent of sentencing, hearing on February 12.
