Murderer at 11, Nathaniel Abraham off parole
Nathaniel Abraham, one of the youngest people to be charged with murder as an adult, has finished his parole, according to the Michigan Department of Corrections.
In 1997, Abraham, then 11, fatally shot Ronnie Greene, 18, in the head outside of a Pontiac party store with a stolen .22-caliber rifle. An Oakland County judge sentenced Abraham, a sixth-grader, for second-degree murder as a juvenile, allowing him a chance to be released when he was 21.
He was released in 2007 at age 21. State programs paid for an apartment and tuition for him to attend a community college. A year later, undercover cops caught Abraham doing a curbside drug deal in downtown Pontiac. He was carrying 254 Ecstasy pills in the trunk of his car.
Abraham was put back behind bars at age 22 to serve a 4-20 year sentence for selling drugs. In 2011, at 25, Abraham was accused of assaulting two Corrections officers in Adrian.
He was released from a Michigan prison on parole in June 2017, and on June 28, was released from parole, said Chris Gautz, a Corrections spokesman.
