Sentencing delayed for youth in beating of fisherman, 76

February 02, 2010

Sixteen-year-old Emmanuel Miller, who was found to have participated in the group beating of a 76-year-old black fisherman last summer - a racially motivated crime, according to police - is to be sentenced next week in juvenile court. He was scheduled for disposition Monday, but the case was held over because an evaluation report was incomplete. Miller, who has a lengthy record of breaking and entering, could be sent to a secure out-of-state facility for rehabilitation. His attorney asked that Miller be allowed to stay home, however, under electronic monitoring. His co-defendants, self-described white supremacist Calvin E. Lockner, a 28-year-old registered sex offender, and Zachary Watson, now 18, are awaiting trial in Baltimore Circuit Court. Miller was initially charged as an adult.
