Camden Teen Sentenced to 30 Years in AC Carjacking
A Camden teenager has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for a fatal Atlantic City carjacking after a judge ruled that he cannot withdraw his guilty plea to felony murder.Nineteen-year-old Raheem Simmons was sentenced Thursday in for the shooting of Sunil Rattu, who was killed, and Radha Ghetia, who survived.
Both were abducted from the parking garage at the Trump Taj Mahal and shot in an alley in September 2011.
Simmons pleaded guilty to murder in March in a deal with prosecutors. But he later tried to withdraw the plea, according to The Press of Atlantic City.
He is also facing charges in a double homicide in Camden.
Two other men are serving sentences in the carjacking case.
