WESTVILLE — A man who was convicted at age 17 for his role in a violent home invasion has filed a lawsuit alleging mistreatment in the Elkhart County Jail 10 years ago.

Darnell Brown, 27, was sentenced to 32 years in prison in January 2012 after pleading guilty to burglary causing injury. He received concurrent prison time, which included another 32-year sentence, after pleading guilty to robbery resulting in serious injury and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is there not a separate charge for assaulting a senior citizen? If so , now's the perfect time to implement it.


Poor Darnell! Just wondering how an elderly veteran lived out his days after being beaten and robbed!
