Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew said Kevin Devonte Richardson, 21, was extradited Tuesday night from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department in Elkhart, Ind., where he had turned himself on May 15.

Richardson is being charged with two counts each of robbery by force and aggravated assault, Chew said.

Richardson is the second suspect arrested in the assault of South Carolina residents Ashley Solesbee and Wesley Spires, who were clubbed with a metal bat or pipe as they sat on a bench on the Riverwalk.

Robey Eugene Moses, 21, was arrested in Newberry, S.C., on May 10 and extradited to Augusta on May 14.

a total image makeover

Gone are the dread locks, facial hair and etc...

Heck I wouldn't doubt he shows up dressed in 3 piece suit with a
bible or Qur'an to court. T

Could the Chronicle repost both pictures?
A kind of Before and after shot.
The contrast is amazing.

Just in case...

If this had been white on
Unpublished

If this had been white on black ole Al, Jesse, the NAACP and many black leaders in Augusta would be marching calling it a hate crime. This case should be considered a hate crime because of the viciousness of the crime.

CNN, Based on recent events

CNN,
Based on recent events involving that kid and the swimming pool, I believe Al and Jesse are contracting a lot of thier work out to that group from Atlanta. The Atlanta group must be 1099 employees.
