Bond denied for adult accused in beating

  • Follow Latest News

 A 29-year-old man accused of joining several teenagers in beating up a young man walking home from school must await possible indictment and trial in jail.

Bond was denied Friday for Rafael J. McBride, who is accused of aggravated battery. Assistant District Attorney Adam Land said the 15-year-old victim was attacked  March 21. He needs surgery to repair a broken jaw, which is wired shut.

McBride, whose criminal history includes convictions for theft and sale of cocaine, denies taking part in the beating.

Come on, give the guy a break. Gang rules require him to participate. And rules are rules; never mind the law.

I'm glad it never occurred to anyone that maybe he actually isn't guilty?

More importantly, though, this really isn't the kind of offense that deserves NO bond. I'm not saying let him out for free, but he's not charged with murder or rape here.
