A teenager who impersonated a state senator at Mohawk High School back in December is back in jail this week for violating the terms of his bond. The Courier reports that Wyandot County officials discovered that 18-year-old Izaha Akins of Marion attended an event in Washington D.C after a common pleas court judge told him he wasn’t allowed to leave the state. Wyandot Prosecutor Doug Rowland says that Akins’ trip to Washington was “all over Facebook”
Appearing in Wyandot County Court on Tuesday, Akins’ attorney said “there was some confusion” about Akins making the trip but the court didn’t buy into that. Originally released on a personal recognizance bond, Akins was charged and had a bond set at $15,000. He was incarcerated and had not posted bond by Thursday.
Akins’ attorney filed a motion asking if Akins could attend a model congress event in Washington. Rowland’s office opposed the motion, and the court told Akins he could not go. Akins’ attorney, Andrew Wick, declined to comment Thursday. Akins pled not guilty on February 11th. A change of plea hearing is scheduled for March 28th.
