On Easter Sunday, a former fellow student paid a teen $20 to punch Kelsey, according to investigators, fracturing his neck and crushing nearly every bone in his face.
“He has four titanium plates in his head and face,” Christi went on explaining a long list of serious injuries her son endured from the punches.
The brutal beating was recorded by another fellow student. In the recording, you can hear laughing as Kelsey falls to the ground. Not only scarring Kelsey physically but emotionally.
“It’s violent and evil and there has to be consequences.”
Brandison Dru Daniel, 20, who police say paid the teen to punch Kelsey, faces conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and criminal responsibility for facilitation of a felony charges out of Wayne County. The juvenile is in juvenile detention.
A detention hearing is being held Wednesday for the juvenile. District Attorney General Brent Copper tells News 2 he is considering filing a motion to have the teen moved to adult court.
I am not holding my breath and expect the culprits will serve nothing else than a misdemeanor charge at the end if they plea guilty.
