Jean Pierre Orlewicz of Michigan, who beheaded an acquiantence back in November when he was 17, is changing his plea from self-defense to "video games made me do it." It's a classic swerve.
The good news is the "rock music made me do it" defense has never held up and while it brings heat to the accused industry, it never really effects what gets released. Anyway, this idiot is claiming he was "under the influence of Hitman", as if it's some kind of substance.
Further damaging Orlewicz's case are a slew of witnesses who recount that before the murder happened, Orlewicz would say things like, "I want to commit a crime… and not get caught and be able to get away with it." Oh, also there was a guy who watched him do it who has already pled guilty to second-degree murder. Oh, and Jean Pierre looks like Jean Lafitte.
This guy is totally screwed and we're okay with that.
