The convictions stem from a March incident where a juvenile male was confronted by the twins near the former Phillips Middle School gymnasium. One of the twin brothers demanded money from the juvenile male, who refused and attempted to walk away. The twins grabbed the juvenile male and pushed him up against a fence, threatening to injure him and holding him there to prevent him from moving. Both Lanell and Javell repeatedly demanded money from the juvenile male and attempted to reach in his pockets for his money and wallet.. The juvenile male was eventually able to run away. The incident was witnessed by three other juveniles. Following the verdict, the twins were placed at the State Training School for Boys in Eldora.
