The *alleged* perpetrator was caught when the video was broadcast.
Now, this monster is pleading "Not Guilty".
By what stretch of imagination can he plead "Not Guilty"? He is there on video! Positive id.
He and his defense council will plead Not Guilty to try to plead down to a lesser charge, is my guess.
(BTW- I don't give a good rat's azz what his childhood was like, what addiction(s), bullying or whatever the crap they are going to present. )
He was caught and guess what? It isn't his first time to commit such a crime.
