Dougherty students will remain in detention center until hearing

January 12, 2005

Albany- The two Dougherty High School students charged with aggravated battery because of a fight at the school last week will stay locked up until the end of the month.

Trevor Moore's front teeth were knocked out when a group of boys jumped him in the hallway.

Rashad Roberts, 15 and Tenorris Wright, 15, are both charged with aggravated battery. Roberts was out on bond from a previous armed robbery case in Dougherty Superior Court. A juvenile court judge decided Wednesday to hold both boys because witnesses at the school have been threatened.

"He felt that the serious nature of what's happened and the safety of the school, that they need to be detained," said Michael Gowin, the prosecutor from the Dougherty District Attorney's office.

"I feel free to say that I feel better for the students at Dougherty High that they're both still locked up in the detention center," Moore said.

The formal hearing in the case will be Monday, January 31.
