Ryan Holle

This is by far the worst use of the felony murder rule that I have every seen. In Florida a 20 year old man by the name of Ryan Holle was sentenced to life in prison for lending his car to a roommate who with several other accomplices attempted to rob a local drug dealer killing the drug dealers daughter in the process. Even though Mr. Holle was a mile and a half away from the crime and there was little evidence that he even new that they were planning on committing a crime he is now serving life in prison.

For more information on his story here is an article from the NY Times
