Authorities: Man who posed as minor and killed 12-year-old Montgomery boy denied parole
A man who posed as a minor and killed a 12-year-old Montgomery boy in 1996 has been denied parole.
Danny Meyer was on his way to a Little League baseball game when 22-year-old Juan Peinado killed him. Peinado had been posing as a minor and going to Valley Central Middle School as a foster child at the time.
Peinado was sentenced to 25 years and will now remain behind bars for at least two more years.
Assembly Member Brian Maher released a statement about the decision to deny him parole. It said in part, “I commend the parole board in seeing the facts in this case, Danny Meyer's young life was savagely taken by Juan Peinado and that he must continue his sentence. Peinado's predatory and ruthless actions are reason enough he should never be released from prison."
