Weapons Charges Against 10 year old BoyPosted on January 26th, 2010 No comments
A 10 year old Detroit boy accused of bringing an unloaded handgun to school was charged with a number of weapons violations in Wyane County Family Court. The incident occurred on January 20, 2010, when another student saw the boy with the gun in a bathroom at Brewer Elementary/Middle School and told a teacher. The teacher took the gun.
The juvenile pleaded guilty last week to possession of a weapon in a weapons-free school zone. The Wayne County Prosecutor issued a release today that a concealed weapons charge and a charge of minor in possession of a firearm in public have been dropped.
This is a little more than a case of “boys will be boys.”
