Teen Refuses To Testify

{London, Kentucky}...U.S. District Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove had 18 year old Alex Jenkins taken into custody Monday after he refused to testify for the prosecution in a hate crime case against his brother, 22 year old Anthony Jenkins. Anthony Jenkins and his cousin, 37 year old Jason Jenkins, are charged with kidnapping 29 year old Kevin Pennington in April 2011 and assaulting him because Pennington is gay, but defense attorneys have said the attack happened for other reasons. Judge Tatenhove says he will give Alex Jenkins another chance to testify Tuesday.
