Jamie Silvonek Case

The Pennsylvania Superior Court this week rejected an appeal in the case of Jamie Lynn Silvonek, who pleaded guilty for her role in killing her mother nearly eight years ago in Lehigh County.

Silvonek had just turned 14, when her mother, Cheryl, was brutally killed in March 2015 in her car outside the family’s Upper Macungie Township home. Prosecutors said the teen plotted with her then-20-year-old boyfriend Caleb Barnes to kill her mother, pushed Barnes to do it and then she helped Barnes get rid of the body.

Silvonek was charged as an adult, pleaded guilty in February 2016 to first-degree murder and related charges, and is serving a sentence of 35 years to life in state prison. She turns 22 next month.

Barnes was later convicted at trial of all the charges against him, including first-degree murder, and was sentenced to life in prison without parole plus 22 to 44 years.

Silvonek previously lost her appeal to have her case sent back to juvenile court, a decision upheld by the state Superior Court.

She then lost her appeal in Lehigh County Court seeking to have her plea vacated, claiming her legal counsel was ineffective and that her guilty plea was not knowing and voluntary.

The Superior Court on Thursday affirmed that lower court denial, which Silvonek had appealed last February, ruling she had “failed to satisfy her ‘burden to persuade us that the (Post Conviction Relief Act) court erred and that relief is due.’”

The Juvenile Law Center in Philadelphia, which represented her, vowed an appeal. “We do plan to seek review in the (Pennsylvania) Supreme Court,” spokesperson Katy Otto told The (Allentown) Morning Call in an email.

Her previous attorney has defended his representation, saying he called three expert witnesses seeking to have her tried as a juvenile, but once the judge ruled against that his options were limited.
