The Florida teens who laughed at, mocked, and filmed a disabled man drowning in a pond will not face charges.
32-year-old Jamel Dunn, drowned on July 9 in a retention pond, but his body wasn’t discovered until July 19, when a friend of his saw the video the teens recorded circulating online and sent it to the authorities.
NY Post reports:
State Attorney Phil Archer released a statement Friday announcing his office’s decision not to criminally charge four juveniles and one adult for failing to help 31-year-old Jamel Dunn at a Cocoa retention pond last July.
Archer pointed out that no Florida law requires a person to provide emergency assistance under the facts of this case. Such a law was proposed during this year’s state legislative session but failed to pass.
