BP: Hearing set to move juvenile to adult court for downtown assault


January 10, 2019

BEMIDJI -- A hearing will be held Wednesday, Jan. 23, to determine whether or not a juvenile will be charged as an adult after allegedly assaulting a man in broad daylight downtown.

Beltrami County prosecutors filed a motion to upgrade the assault charge out of juvenile court on Jan. 3, arguing the offense would be considered a felony if committed by an adult and that keeping the case in juvenile court “does not serve public safety.”
