Teen accused in bat attack moved back to juvenile court
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — One of the three teens charged in a baseball bat attack near Bismarck has been moved to juvenile court in a rare legal decision.
The 16-year-old was charged as an adult in October with conspiracy to commit murder. He’s one of three teens accused of planning to beat and kill a man with a bat last July at the MacLean Bottoms south of Bismarck. Alessandro Pippia survived the attack.
The Bismarck Tribune says an attorney for the teen, Lloyd Suhr, said he couldn’t comment on specifics of the proceedings because of the confidentiality of juvenile court. But, Suhr says it’s rare for a juvenile case to be transferred to adult court and then remanded
