Drop the Charges on Jeshaun
We, the undersigned, call on the Champaign County State’s Attorney Julia Rietz to drop the charge of aggravated resistance of a peace officer against Jeshaun Manning-Carter. The charge stems from his and Kiwane Carrington’s encounter with the Champaign Police on October 9, 2009, when Kiwane was shot dead by the police. This 16-year-old teen has already suffered the trauma of being present while his best friend was killed, which is being compounded by an unnecessary and highly questionable felony charge. We urge the state’s attorney not to add criminal insult to the psychological injury of a minor. Read more information here: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/dropthecharges/blog.
