ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y. -- The conviction for a man who shot and killed his three-month-old son has been upheld. Adam Theall tried to say the waiver to his right to appeal was not valid.
State Supreme Court judges ruled against him and took it one step further, saying that even if the waiver was not valid, they would not agree with the defendant's claim that his sentence is unduly harsh or severe.
In June of 2010, Theall stood on his parents' porch when he shot and killed his three-month-old son. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara said he would see to it that Theall never gets parole.
