Bond was denied Friday for a 15-year-old accused of being the gunman in the holdup of a fast-food restaurant in which an employee was shot.

Deandre M. Scott faces a charge of armed robbery as an adult in Richmond County Superior Court. The crime is punishable by a minimum 10-year prison sentence.

Assistant District Attorney Natalie Paine said Friday that just before 8 p.m. Feb. 9, two men with shirts covering their faces robbed a Kentucky Fried Chicken. When an employee said the cash register was locked and couldn’t be opened, one of the robbers shot him in the left knee.

Frederick J. Bolden, 23, is also charged in the robbery. He is being held without bond.

More than likely the judge will give him first offender status and he'll walk. He's a good boy who's turning his life around and him being punished for doing wrong would damage his self esteem. He'll be involved in a murder before it's all over.
