Assault, arson, criminal possession offender-no jail time due to age. It's the Deal of the Day: Cam Edwards tells the story of Curtis Byers, now a 17-year-old student at Williamsville South High School in Buffalo, NY, who brutally and heinously attacked a classmate this month. Byers has confessed to an armed robbery in 2007 that left a man shot, and an arson that nearly killed a Buffalo firefighter in that same year. For those offenses, Byers served no jail time and was only given community service because he was a minor, though authorities hope he will go to jail this time before more people are hurt. That's today's Deal of the Day.
