Baltimore, MD - Judge Denies Motion To Drop Charges Against Werdesheims
Maryland - A Baltimore judge has denied a motion to drop charges against two brothers accused of beating a black teenager while patrolling for a Jewish neighborhood watch.
Eliyahu Werdesheim and his wife walk out of the circuit courthouse on Tuesday.
The request came after the state rested its case Tuesday in the bench trial for Eliyahu and Avi Werdesheim, who are charged in the 2010 beating of a 15-year-old boy in Baltimore.
Assistant State’s Attorney Kevin Wiggins told the judge one brother grabbed the teen and the other hit him on the head with a radio.
Judge Pamela White noted “contradictions and inconsistencies” in testimony, but said she wouldn’t review witnesses’ credibility at this point.
The defense will begin presenting its case Wednesday.
