Although this is good news. 15 yr old Zachary Huston who was attacked while the bully waited for him can breath a sigh of relief that the bully Levi Sever has been charged with a felony in the attack.
A 15-year-old Ross County boy was charged this morning with a delinquency count of assault in the videotaped beating of a fellow high-school student that sparked fresh calls to protect gay kids from bullying.
Unioto High School student Levi Sever will appear later in juvenile court to answer to the charge filed by the office of Prosecutor Matthew Schmidt following an investigation by the sheriff’s office. Schmidt was not available for comment this morning.
Sever is accused of assaulting 15-year-old Zachary Huston at the high school on Oct. 17, with the victim’s mother contending he was targeted because he is gay. The case has captured national attention.
“A lot of people feel the outrage but don’t always know how to make their voices heard,” said Bret Thompson, a Columbus man leading an online petition drive in the wake of the attack.
