Joseph Hall, who was just 10 years old when he put a gun to his father's ear and pulled the trigger in 2011, was sentenced to 10 years in juvenile detention today in California.
Hall was convicted of second-degree murder in January. He told authorities that he killed his dad, the neo-Nazi leader Jeff Hall, because his parents were getting a divorce and he didn't want to have to make a decision about who to live with. NBC News reports that Joseph was physically abused as a child and afflicted with behavioral issues.
The judge ruled today that Joseph will be eligible for parole in seven years and that the latest he can be released is when he's 23.
