Hasien Markeese Ransom, 16, was arrested for the murder of a Conway man in January.
Circuit Court Judge Steven John sentenced Ransom Wednesday to 20 years in prison.
On January 7, Ransom shot Sylvester Lorenzo Bell Jr., on Sixth Avenue in Conway. Bell later died.
Ransom was 15-years-old when he was arrested, but was tried as an adult.
Ransom will serve his sentence in the Department of Juvenile Justice until he reaches the age of 18. He will serve the rest of his sentence in prison.
