Clayton Whittemore

Clayton Whittemore


The Background:

In the early morning hours of September 29, 2012, campus police found Alexandra Kogut dead in her dorm room, the victim of blunt force trauma. Her boyfriend, 21-year-old hockey star Clayton Whittemore, was charged with second degree murder after allegedly beating her to death after a series of “silly arguments.” The belligerent beau allegedly admitted to killing her according to the criminal felony complaint but later pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Sweden Town Court. Slowly, Whittemore’s violent history has come to light, and Kogut responded with one last eerie tweet before her death, “I should have known.”

On Friday May 30, a twelve person jury, mostly men, found a Whittemore guilty of murder in the second-degree. Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley is asking for the maximum penalty, which is 25 years to life behind bars. Judge Doyle has scheduled the sentencing for July 15.

I dont believe he wanted his girlfriend dead. I definitely believe he exhibited some emotional disturbance. His anger transpired from a troubled childhood of heinous abuse. I agree with the defense that he shouldve been granted a lesser sentence of manslaughter. My prayers are with both Kogut and Whittemore families.

   
Jessica says:

I am happy for the Kogut family as they got just served for their beautiful daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter, etc. However, I do believe Clayton Whittemore had some undiagnosed mental illnesses that his Mom should of sought out for him and his siblings after enduring heinous abuse.

   
Jessica says:

Im not saying that he should get off with murder. But if he was abused as a child, then he should be cut some slack, as long as hes remorseful and sorry about what he did. I do believe hes mentally ill and should get no more than 5 years behind bars. If they cut George Zimmerman some slack and he intentionally gunned down Trayvon Martin, then Whittemore should be cut some slack.
