A man charged with beating a rival gang member so badly the victim lost an eye

00:40 |

A man charged with beating a rival gang member so badly the victim lost an eye pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of aggravated battery.

All other charges against Michael Frazier – a second count of aggravated battery, two counts of mob action, and one count of unlawful contact with a street gang member – were dropped in exchange for the plea. He was sentenced to three years in the department of corrections, followed by one year of parole. He will receive credit for 264 days he already has served in the county jail since his arrest.

Frazier, 22, was one of eight people – six men and two juveniles – charged in a gang-related beating in DeKalb February. Police said the group was at a residence in the 800 block of Oak Street about 9:15 p.m. Feb. 28 when two members of a rival gang walked past, shouting insults at people on the home’s porch. The eight people in the house then attacked the two people in the street, police said.

At a plea hearing Thursday, DeKalb County Assistant State’s Attorney Stephanie Klein said Frazier beat one of the victims in the head so badly the man eventually lost an eye.

A misdemeanor battery charge Frazier picked up while incarcerated also was dropped under Thursday’s plea agreement. Police said Frazier punched another inmate in the face last July in a dispute over a card game. That inmate did not require treatment.
