Trial for Juwan Wickware pushed back 1 week

FLINT (WJRT) -

(07/24/12) - The trial for a Flint teenager has been pushed back for a week.

Juwan Wickware was 16 at the time of pizza delivery man Michael Nettles' shooting death in April of 2010.

His case could have national implications.

A U.S. supreme court ruling says juveniles cannot face mandatory life in prison sentences.

Michigan currently allows those sentences.

A judge recently ruled the issue will have to be taken up at sentencing if Wickware is convicted.
