Honor Student Who Claims Genitals Manhandled During Police Patdown Reaches Agreement On Criminal Charges
For months, Mathematics Civics and Sciences Charter School student Darrin Manning faced aggravated assault, simple assault and other charges in connection with a January 7th pat down. But his attorney William Buckman says they’ve hammered out the charges with the DA’s office.
Attorney David Rudovsky worked with the ACLU in representing a class of plaintiffs in a 2010 suit against the city of Philadelphia over its stop and frisk policy.
“It’s time for the district attorney to withdraw charges in this case,” said Lewis Small, attorney for Darrin Manning, during a press conference. “It’s just time to end the injustice.”
Darrin Manning, 16, says police caused him a ruptured testicle while frisking him on a center city streetcorner last January 7th.
More than 100 people attended a town hall at Catalyst for Change Church in West Philadelphia to support 16-year-old Darrin Manning, who claims he suffered a ruptured testicle during a stop and frisk near Broad Street and Girard Avenue.
The boy claims he was sexually assaulted during a pat down near Broad and Girard earlier this month.
The mother of straight-A student Darrin Manning says her son was roughed up by police during a streetcorner patdown.
According to a published report, a 16-year-old boy who is a straight-A student at Mathematics, Civics & Sciences Charter School suffered a ruptured testicle during a patdown by police at 15th and Girard on January 7th.
