The prosecutor Wayne County, Michigan admitted to the family Bryce Lindley, who was charged last month with aggravated assault over a school dodgeball game, that pressing charges was a mistake.
In a letter to the family's attorney, Maurice Davis, Kym L. Worthy wrote, "The charge in this case was a mistake in judgment by this office, even though it was rectified by permanently dismissing the case on July 31, 2019, prior to the first scheduled court proceeding."
Worthy continued, "To be clear, my office will not be refiling this petition, nor was it ever the intent of our office to do so. I have taken this extremely seriously, and concrete steps have already been made. I am currently reviewing the policies and procedures of our Juvenile Division and re-enforcing internal measures to prevent a similar matter from occurring in the future."
