Mychal Bell Close to Plea

Mychal Bell, the 17 year old accused of beating a white classmate, and leading to one of the largest civil rights protest (since the 50's) is close to a deal. This would bring his felony charge down to a misdemeanor and possibly have him avoid a second trial.

It is coming on a one year anniversary from the attack and the noose found hanging on the tree.

Bell was scheduled for a Thursday trial in juvenile court but if negotiations are successful, he could enter a plea as early as Monday afternoon, Powell Lexing said

No one is condoning what Mychal Bell has done, what is being questioned is the equality of the sentence.
