People vs. Najaliek McCall

On August 18, 2006, 15 year old Shahied Oliver was shot and killed while at a party at Skyline Garden apartments in the City of Albany. While the party was crowded, the investigation of the case was hampered by a lack of cooperation associated with witness intimidation. Ultimately several brave members of the community came forward and provided information which lead to the arrest of another 15 year old, Najaliek McCall on August 29, 2006. Following a trial, Mr. McCall was convicted of Murder in the Second Degree, and on July 15, 2008, he was sentenced to the maximum as a juvenile offender: 15 years to life in prison.
