Court hearing for YDC inmate postponed

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

The court hearing for a YDC inmate accused of assaulting another inmate has been continued until the juvenile can be psychologically evaluated.

The juvenile is accused of beating another inmate in December, and is charged with criminal attempted murder.

Today's hearing was originally scheduled to determine if the case should continue in juvenile court, or be transferred to superior court, where the juvenile would be charged as an adult.

Judge Pamela Doumar ordered a psych evaluation take place before the hearing move forward. She tells Fox 54 she isn't sure when the case could resume.

The juvenile, who is almost 16 years old, is now being held at a facility in Eastman, GA.
