Apparently the victim decided restorative justice was the best outcome for this case. I’m sure no influence was put upon him…
From SF Gate: San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is withdrawing charges against one of the two suspects arrested in connection to a shocking viral video that shows an Asian man being robbed.
Twenty-year-old Dwayne Grayson, who police say recorded and uploaded the disturbing clip to social media, will no longer be charged with elder abuse, and will instead face “restorative justice,” which involves rehabilitation and reconciliation with victims.
“We’ve been in conversation with the victim who expressed interest in a restorative justice outcome in this case,” Alex Bastian, a spokesperson for the DA’s office, told The Chronicle. “Specifically, against the young person who videoed the incident. We respect victims and their desires and we will explore a restorative justice outcome.”
Grayson was also suspected of violating probation for battery.
Earlier Monday, police arrested 56-year-old Jonathan Amerson, the person suspected of hitting the victim with a metal pole. He was charged with robbery and elder abuse, and is also suspected of robbing the same victim of his recyclables about two months ago in the same area.
