19-year-old former University of Arizona student is convicted of first degree murder
Galareka Harrison, a 19-year-old former student at the University of Arizona was convicted of first-degree murder on Friday September 19, 2008. Harrison was convicted of murder in the death of her 18-year-old roommate Mia Henderson after she was found guilty of stabbing Henderson 23 times.
Harrison was also found guilty of three counts of forgery and one count of identity theft. Prosecutors said Harrison had planned the murder for several days after Henderson accused her of stealing her student ID charge card, social security card, checks, and $500 from her bank account.
With such serious and extensive allegations, it would have been very important for Harrison and her family to retain a competent murder, identity theft and forgery defense attorney. Harrison now faces life in prison, but could be eligible for parole after 25 years. With adequate legal representation, somebody being faced with such serious criminal charges has a chance at the sentence they deserve rather than the one prosecutors claim they deserve.
