16 year old Randolph Parker punched his teacher in the face, while 17 year old Dominick Harris filmed the attack on his cell phone
The brutal attack of a Murphy High School teacher is caught on tape, and News 5 has obtained a copy of the video.
Prosecutors showed the tape during a bond hearing Thursday.
Investigators say 16 year old Randolph Parker punched his teacher in the face, while 17 year old Dominick Harris filmed the attack on his cell phone.
Melinda Rudisill, 61, was rushed to the hospital where she received 20 stitches. Investigators tell News 5 Parker may have used brass knuckles during the attack.
Captain J.E. Dove of the Mobile Police Department testified at the hearing. Dove showed two pictures taken about a week after the attack. Dove says the pictures show a freshly painted gang symbol outside Parker's home.
"He's advertising he's got juice in the gang," said Dove. "In my expert opinion he's bragging cause he did this to a teacher."
Parker's bond is set at $250,000, while bond for Harris is $100,000.
Caroline Siderius, a prosecutor in the case, hopes that will keep the teens behind bars.
"It's high enough that hopefully they won't get out of jail anytime soon," said Siderius.
Harris' family attempted to storm out of the courtroom after bond was set, but bailiffs forced them to sit back down. One family member was held in contempt for swearing at an officer.
The teens are charged with second degree assault. If convicted, they will face up to ten years in prison.
