Teen Accused Of Killing Rabbi Raksin Pleads Not Guilty


deandre charlesDeandre Charles, the 15-year-old teen accused of murdering Rabbi Yosef Raksin during a daylight robbery attempt in northeast Miami-Dade, pleaded not guilty on Monday, the Miami Herald reports.

The tall and lanky teen — his distinct hair cut short while in jail — appeared Monday in Miami-Dade Circuit Court for his arraignment after a grand jury last week indicted him for first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Charles shot and killed Rabbi Yosef Raksin, a rabbi visiting from Brooklyn who was walking to shul in August 2014. Raksin, in accordance with his beliefs, had no valuables on him when he was felled with one .40-caliber bullet to the chest.
Also, WSVN-Ch. 7 reported Monday that it had found a photo of someone thought to be Charles holding a semi-automatic weapon. The photo was obtained from a Facebook page under the name of Papito L. Franklins, which law enforcement sources believe is a social media nickname used by Charles. The photo and page were both deleted hours after his arrest last week.


  1. Why haven’t we heard from “black lives matter”??? Oh right, the VICTIM has to be a black criminal. The fact that the person occupying the White house gives any credence to that sick group, is very troubling.
