Re-posting from the UC-IMC site:
CU Citizens for Peace and Justice is launching a petition drive to demand that State’s Attorney Julia Rietz drop all charges against Jeshaun Manning-Carter.
The best friend of Kiwane Carrington, Jeshaun was with him on Oct. 9 when he was killed.
He is currently being prosecuted with felony charges of resisting a “peace” officer.
His next court hearing is Jan. 19 at 2pm in Courtroom C.
Until then you can sign the petition here:
You can also call State’s Attorney Julia Rietz at 384-3733.
Tell her the best thing to do for this youth is to drop the charges against him – not send him to juvenile detention or reform school.
