Boys accused in attack stay in custody

Published: Sat, August 7, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m.

Staff report


The three teens charged in the July 21 baseball-bat beating of 15-year-old Verdarell Lowery of Warren will remain in juvenile custody until at least their next hearing.

Johntee Daniel, 16; Jovan Daniel, 15; and Shawdon Flowers, 15; have appeared in Trumbull County Juvenile Court for a plea hearing, pleaded innocent and were ordered to remain in the juvenile facility.

Jovan Daniel and Flowers appeared for their hearing Friday before Magistrate Monte Horton. Johntee Daniel’s plea hearing occurred as part of his initial appearance last week.

Johntee Daniel’s next hearing will be in the latter part of August, said Stanley Elkins, an assistant Trumbull County prosecutor. Elkins said he didn’t know when the two others would have their next hearing.

The three are charged with felonious assault and other charges after police say they participated in the videotaped assault on Lowery that took place at the corner of Brier Street and Duke Avenue Southeast. The assault left Lowery in critical condition at Akron Children’s Hospital.

It turns out that Verdarell Lowery has been released from his medically induced coma and his swelling has subsided. Verdarell is very responsive and seems to be on his way to recovery. Thank God. Further reports (WKBN) indicated that Mr. Lowery was a MAJOR instigator in the malee prior to being struck with the bat. The three teens arrested for assulting Verdarell had been tormented by Verdarell and his fellow gang members over the course of several years prior to the brawl that took place on July 21, 2010.
As I've stated before, the parents of these teens need to do a much better job of accounting for their children (NO EXCUSES!!!)

It all starts with the parents. They have no morals, so neither will their kids. Stupidity breeds stupidity. The parents need to be held accountable. I will bet that if these kids get off easy, it won't be too long before they are once again arrested. If it turns out that Verdarell was a part of this malee, he is being punished right now. I really hope that is not the case.
