Sheriff Bill Prummell issued a statement Friday addressing the incident Wednesday when 12-year-old Malikai Vilatte had his teeth knocked out by a 27-year-old man. Vincent Cefalo, 27, claimed self-defense and no charges have been brought against him. However, the responding deputy turned the investigation over to the State Attorney and requested a summons be issued for the juvenile on an assault charge.
Prummell defended his deputies and assured the public the incident would be fully investigated by the Investigations Unit.
