Senate Votes to Compensate Parents of Murdered Teen

April 16th, 2008 by flanews

The parents of a murdered teenager are a step closer to being awarded 1.7 million dollars. In 2004, 14 year old Jaime Gough was reportedly killed by a classmate at a Miami-Dade middle school. Wednesday the state Senate approved a claims bill for the Gough family. The victim’s father George Gough said while he’s happy with the vote, it’s not an easy process.

“My son is not here anymore. Going through all this hurts, it hurts. I just have to hold my head up for my son,” said George Gough.

The House has yet to take up the bill.
