One young man accused of participating in an April attack on staff of the Victor Cullen Center in Sabillasville pleaded guilty this week, and two juveniles will be tried as adults.
Diego Glay, 19, pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of riot and second-degree assault. Frederick County Circuit Judge Theresa M. Adams denied motions to transfer Bernard Moore and Daniel Ennos to juvenile jurisdiction.
Adams sentenced Glay to 10 years in prison with all but 18 months suspended and supervised probation upon his release, according to Frederick County State’s Attorney Charlie Smith’s office.
The decision regarding Moore and Ennos, both 17, came after nearly two weeks of hearings, according to the state’s attorney’s office. Prosecutors made the case that Moore, from Frederick County, and Ennos, from Prince George’s County, are not amenable to treatment offered by juvenile detention centers. Both defendants had been under juvenile jurisdiction and in therapy for years before the April incident.
The April 8 riot began after Ennos attacked another boy in a common area, authorities said. Ennos is also accused of attacking a female employee after learning he would be sanctioned.
A fight ensued between staff and a group of young men, including Ennos, Glay, Moore and Ali Mohammed Tarek. Multiple staff members were injured in the fight, according to the state’s attorney’s office.
Tarek, 18, pleaded guilty on Sept. 10 to charges of first- and second-degree assault and rioting.
