“Jennifer – The Littlest Witness”

Jennifer Royal was playing with her friend Peaches Wiley on a hot afternoon in the impoverished area of Miami known as Liberty City.  Without warning, a drug dealer gone berserk had an argument with Jennifer’s uncle and pulled out a semi-automatic pistol. Gunshots rang out.  In an instant, Jennifer  and her playmate lay wounded.

Jennifer ‘s wound was not life-threatening, but her friend Peaches was not as lucky.  Jennifer watched Peaches bleed to death next to her.

After recovering, four year-old Jennifer would become the youngest person in U.S. history to testify in a capital murder trial.  And she did so with the recollection and composure of a person way beyond her years.

The shooter was convicted on her testimony.
