Teens Plead Guilty to Savagely Beating 74-Year-Old Restaurant Owner

They face up to 25 years in prison.


Two Michigan teens pleaded guilty yesterday to brutally beating an Ann Arbor restaurant owner. According to MLive, Antonio Young and Carmichael Chavis admitted that they "punched, kicked, and beat" 74-year-old Yong Kim near his restaurant Mary's Fabulous Chicken and Fish. The teens beat Kim with a plastic milk crate while robbing him of his wallet last summer. Kim suffered severe bruising and "two large cuts on the top of his head" that required nearly 20 staples to heal. He also had "extensive" damage to his face and neck from the assault.

Kim says he forgives the boys. He told ABC7 last September, "I want to help them. Even though they done bad thing, they young men... they have [a] future." Young and Carmichael pleaded guilty to charges of armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, and assault with intent to create bodily harm. Both could serve up to 25 years in prison.
