15-year-old juvenile sentenced to 30 days detention for obstructing justice in death of Jaden Lee Krauss

Judge Ericka Sanders has sentenced a 15-year-old Centralia juvenile boy to 30 days in juvenile detention for lying to police about the death of 13-year-old Jaden Lee Krauss.

The juvenile is already serving five years in the juvenile department of corrections for an unrelated burglary conviction. The time will be served concurrently.

The 15-year-old entered an open plea to the charge, with the Judge deciding on the sentence.

The juvenile is accused of giving police false information on how Krauss ended up shot on the front porch of the juvenile’s home.

His 13-year-old brother was earlier sentenced to five years probation for felony obstructing justice for lying to police about removing the gun involved in the Krauss shooting from the home. It has never been recovered.

The mother of the boys, Nicole Kirgan, remains in the Marion County Jail awaiting trial for obstructing justice and charges added later for harassment of a witness.

Another 15-year-old juvenile who admitted to shooting Krauss in the head and was earlier sentenced to five years in the Juvenile Department of Corrections for involuntary manslaughter.
