On March 20, a Johnson County Judge sentenced 19-year-old Fernando Reyes-Lara to 33 years in prison on multiple charges. Shawnee police responded to a call on Nov. 30, 2022 to find 25-year-old Jarod Rogers to be fatally shot. Reyes-Lara was charged with second degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action.

Reyes-Lara was 17-years-old at the time of murder. This case, and many cases like it, can take an upwards of 10 years for the alleged criminals to be charged. When these cases take so long to go through the justice system, closure and healing is often very hard for the victims’ families.

Hello!! I am Olivia Tarvin and this will be my second year on staff! I am on the Senior Ads team and I couldn’t be more excited for the year to come! I chose SPUB because I love to write, design, and educate the student body on things they may not know about! I am so excited to design more this year and create the Senior Ads! Journalism means so much to me because it not only gives me an outlet to write, but it also can be such a good place to learn more about the world, the community and even the school! When I’m not writing a story, designing, or playing with the band, you’ll probably find me outside watching the sunsets/sunrises, kayaking, fishing, camping, or just hanging out with the people I love most!
