6 Face Charges After Video Of Flint Beating On Facebook

FLINT (WWJ/AP) – Six young people have been charged after a video posted on Facebook showed a 16-year-old girl being dragged from a Flint home and beaten.

The video posted this month shows the girl being punched and kicked until her face was bloodied.

Two 16-year-olds, Faith Trinae Richard and Rachael Nichole Hudson, have been arraigned in Genesee County District Court on charges of first-degree home invasion and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.

Donivin Allen-Megail Cherry, 19, and three 17-year- olds, Aliecia Deshaun King, Unique Raquel Richard and Marie Nicole Drinkwine, charged with one count each of first-degree home invasion, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and using a computer to commit a crime.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton tells The Flint Journal that having a video “helps us identify the individuals that are perpetrating the crime.”

The video was posted on a Facebook page that uses Flint police in its title, but police say the page isn’t affiliated with the department.
