Guilty verdicts in Long Beach (* updated)

Allegations of felony assault against nine juveniles are found to be true, not true for the youngest accused. The hate crime allegations are also found true against eight of the African American defendants, as well as an enhancement of inflicting great bodily harm against five of the juveniles. In juvenile proceedings, the findings are not technically guilty verdicts. The teenagers remain in custody and go back to court next Wednesday for the victims to give their statements. "The only way I can describe this is a very emotional courtroom," Dave Lopez says on KCAL-9.
