SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -
It was one of Salisbury's most tragic and high profile criminal cases, and it led to a push to curb the activity of gangs in Salisbury, and across North Carolina.
Treasure Feamster, 13, was shot and killed while attending a party at the J.C. Price American Legion building. She was caught in the crossfire of two rival gangs who were shooting it out in the parking lot.
On Tuesday the man who police say pulled the trigger and killed Feamster in March, 2007, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, but still denied killing Feamster.
Reginald Leach, 22, who was charged with murder, pleaded guilty under an Alford plea to voluntary manslaughter, felony inciting a riot, and a felony charge of possession of a firearm by a felon.
An Alford plea means the defendant does not admit guilt, but acknowledges that prosecutors could win a conviction if the case were to go to trial.
Leach was sentenced to 100 to 129 months in prison by Judge Erwin Spainhour, but will get credit the part of the nearly six years that he has been in jail that was related to the Feamster case.
District Attorney Brandy Cook told WBTV that the decision to accept the plea was not an easy one.
