Lima juvenile pleads guilty to robbery, firearm charges as adult

By J Swygart -

LIMA — Two days shy of his 18th birthday, a Lima teenager entered guilty pleas to two felony charges Thursday that could land him in prison for up to 22 years.

Daquan Green was indicted by an Allen County grand jury in April on two counts of aggravated robbery, first-degree felonies, and one count of felonious assault, a felony of the second degree. All three charges contained specifications that a firearm was used during the commission of the alleged crimes.

On Jan. 5, a complaint was filed in the Juvenile Division of Allen County Common Pleas Court alleging that Green committed a theft offense on or about Dec. 28, 2017, with a firearm that he did “recklessly display … brandish … (or) indicate that he possessed …”

A similar incident allegedly occurred the following day, when Green again did “knowingly cause or attempt to cause physical harm to … Abead Salam Abukhair, by means of a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance,” according to court documents.

During Thursday’s pre-trial hearing before Allen County Common Pleas Judge David Cheney, Green accepted a deal from prosecutors that called for him to plead guilty to one count of aggravated robbery with a firearm specification and one count of felonious assault. The remaining charge was dismissed.

A pre-sentence investigation was ordered by the court. Green will be sentenced Sept. 13.
