Support Growing For Wayne County Man Who Detained Young Vandals

Clyde, N.Y.- Jesse Daniels has no regrets, but would like to see the charges against him dropped or at the very least reduced.

He is charged with four counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

This, after he admitted to locking four children, ages 8 and 10 in a closet, after catching them vandalizing his father-in-laws house.

Daniels said he didn't know he wasn't allowed to detain the children until police arrived.

But, Clyde Police said that isn't why Daniels is facing charges.

Officer Larry LaValley said the children said they felt threatened and that is the reason for the charges against Daniels.

Clyde Police didn't not charge Daniels right away.

In fact, they waited two days and until they consulted with the Wayne County District Attorney.

Support for Daniels is growing in the small village of Clyde, Wayne County and all across the country.

People have expressed outrage on Twitter and Facebook that Daniels was charged at all.

The four youngsters are all charged with Burglary and Criminal Mischief.

The father of two of the boys told 13WHAM News he didn't condone what they did, but believed Daniels should face even more charges.

Paul Bowler claimed that Daniels threatened to "bash the kids heads in."

Daniels denied threatening the children.

He hopes that the charges against him might be dropped because of public support. The childrens case will be heard Wednesday in Family Court.
