West Palm Beach, FL — A Florida teenager was sentenced to 18 months in juvenile detention after pleading guilty to elder abuse charges for coaxing his senile grandmother into a “gangster rap” video.
Michael Alfinez, age 18, made no comments in entering the guilty plea Tuesday. His family has said the case was blown out of proportion.
Alfinez’s 85-year-old grandmother can be seen in the video holding a handgun, wearing a black mask and threatening to shoot “all the pigs.”
Alfinez was arrested in April after authorities seized the tape in a routine traffic stop, which also included footage of him and others shooting a pistol around town.
Alfinez also pleaded guilty to charges of firing out of a moving vehicle and into a building.
