Michael Bargo Becomes Youngest Person on Florida's Death Row
OCALA - Judge David Eddy sentenced Michael Bargo to death on Friday, after a jury made the same recommendation in August.
Bargo is accused of being the mastermind and trigger man behind the 2011 brutal murder of 15 year-old Seath Jackson of Summerfield.
Jackson's family was not in court for the sentencing.
Bargo's family was present, and his father told the media he thought there were pieces of evidence during the trial that weren't presented that should have been.
Bargo's attorneys plan to begin the appeals process.
Bargo is currently being transported to the Florida State Prison in Raiford.
