New Video in Carter Strange Beating Revealed

Parents to view surveillance footage prior to hearing


By Monique Williams

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Eight months after their son was severely beaten in Columbia's Five Points, the parents of the victim witness the moments leading up to their son's attack.

Never before seen surveillance footage the night then 18-year-old, Carter Strange, was attacked in Columbia's Five Points is revealed.
Parents, John and Vicki Strange, will have a private viewing of the video prior to a Tuesday hearing involving one of the juveniles accused in the summer attack on their son.

Here's the back story.

Four of eight teenagers originally charged are on probation. It was determined they did not take part in the actual physical assault that left Strange bloodied, broken and bruised as he jogged home June 20th.
The remaining four suspects, accused of inflicting the injuries, remain behind bars. 20-year-old Tyheem Henry and a second suspect will be tried as adults. It has yet to be determined if the final two, both juveniles, will also be tried as adults. The judge is expected to hear from character witnesses, a psychologist and the view results of a mental evaluation of the 15-year-old due in court Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Stranges armor up for another battle to get what they call justice for their son.

"We're fighting for carter until he can for himself," said Vicki Strange.

After the first juvenile's waiver hearing Tuesday, authorities say a hearing for the final juvenile in the case will take place in April. ABC Columbia will be in court Wednesday and bring you the latest live from Main and Gervais at 6 & 11.

They should be tried as adults. They changed Carter's life forever and they should be made to pay for a very long time. And if some stupid Judge says they are juveniles, then the parents of these animals should be made to pay. When they left this poor kid bleeding on the street, they left him for dead, this is attempted murder, and it is a race crime. They would not have done this if Carter was black.

What is a juvenile doing running around with an older group. If he plays...they he pays, as an adult!

most definately they all should be tried as adults..........they should be required to pay all medical bills and support him until he is able to.
