Hearing for gang member in BRAVE program today
BATON ROUGE - A judge could determine whether a local teen convicted of gang activity has satisfied Baton Rouge Police's new anti-violence program and probation requirements, or should be sent to jail.
The teen was one of four members of the "Get Off Boys" convicted of criminal street gang activity, along with simple robbery and accessory to robbery. The judge allowed him to join the BRAVE program before making a final decision on his sentencing.
News 2's Rob Krieger recently profiled the Get Off Boys, which operated in the Gardere area of East Baton Rouge Parish, along with other street gangs in Baton Rouge. He'll have an update on this hearing tonight starting at 4 p.m.
