An 11-Year-Old’s Robbery Charges Were Dropped. Then He Was Arrested Again.

From a Washington Post story by Keith L. Alexander headlined “An 11-year-old’s robbery charges were dropped. Then he was arrested again.”:

In early June, D.C. prosecutors dismissed criminal charges against a notable offender: an 11-year-old who police alleged was responsible for an assault and two robberies the previous month.

But the youth, who agreed to stay out of Northwest D.C. and wear an ankle monitor if a probation officer determined it was necessary to resolve the charges, didn’t stay out of the court system for long. On Wednesday, he appeared virtually in court again — in connection with another robbery.
