Charges against victim of house vandalism dropped
- Updated: June 20, 2013
The charges against a Clyde man, for attempting to keep the perpetrators of a vandalism on site while awaiting police, have been dropped.
Following an outcry from people locally and around the county, the Endangering the Welfare of a Child charges against Jesse Daniels of Clyde are not being pursued by Wayne County District Attorney, Rick Healy.
Jesse Daniels faced four counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child for allegedly threatening the boys and holding them in a closet until police arrived. Although the vandals were 10 and 8 year old, they are accused of doing $50,000 in damage to the house which Daniels was renovating for his father in law.
In a letter, addressed to Clyde Justice Lester Carr on Thursday, Healy wrote: “Upon review of this matter, I decline prosecution of Mr. Daniels in the interest of justice. Therefore, the charges should be dismissed.”
