Cambron pleaded guilty in April to manslaughter and tampering with evidence in connection with the case.
Cambron, 26, was supposed to stand trial for the murder of 12-year-old Ray Allen Etheridge, but this guilty plea avoided that. Upon conviction, Cambron could have been sentenced to life in prison.
Before handing down the sentence, the judge asked whether there was anything the defense wanted addressed. Cambron’s attorney asked that all pronouns in the paperwork be changed from “he” to “she,” because “Joey” Cambron identifies as a transgender female.
