Juvenile Court Judge Dan Michael says he cannot – and will not – allow public sentiment to influence his rulings as he considers the cases of teen offenders, including those accused of mob-like action.
Michaels’s viewpoint moved to the forefront this week (Tuesday, Oct. 14th) as court proceedings began in the prosecution of 10 teens charged with attacking two Kroger employees and a would-be customer on the parking lot of the Kroger’s in the Poplar Plaza Shopping Center. The September incident became a YouTube sensation, as one teen in a lime green T-shirt was shown repeatedly stomping a victim on the ground.
