Autumn Pasquale’s Father Files Civil Suit Against Murderers [POLL]

The question of whether you can you blame the parents for the sins of  the children comes up in Gloucester County where the father of Autumn Pasquale has filed a civil lawsuit against the parents of her killer, citing negligence.

Anthony Pasquale filed the lawsuit in Gloucester County Superior Court on Sept. 23 claiming Justin Robinson’s parents Anita Saunders and Alonzo Robinson knew or should have known before Autumn’s murder in October 2012 that their son was “possibly engaging in the theft of bicycles;” required remedial treatment for pre-existing emotional, psychological and neuro-developmental problems; and had been negatively impacted by witnessing domestic abuse in the home.

Justin Robinson, now 16, was arrested last fall and charged with Autumn’s murder. The Clayton teen pleaded guilty in August to aggravated manslaughter after admitting he lured the 12-year-old Clayton Middle School student to his house under the pretense of discussing bicycle parts, then her.

Robinson’s brother Dante, 18, who was also arrested and charged with murder last year, was released from the Camden County Youth Correctional Facility last week after pleading guilty in juvenile court to an obstruction charge. He was released with time served. Justin Robinson admitted in his guilty plea that he acted alone in the luring and murder.

Should the parents of Justin Robinson bear any financial responsibility in this tragedy?
