As we previously expected, Jared Loughner pled guilty to shooting and killing six people in Tuscon last year as part of an agreement allowing him to avoid the death penalty.
Loughner accepted guilt on 19 criminal counts in a plea agreement, including attempted assassination of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the first degree murder of two federal employees, and the attempted murder of two other federal employees.
Gabby and her husband Mark Kelly are content with Loughner's plea.
So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
