CHICAGO (AP) -- One of the Chicago teens charged in the videotaped beating of a high school senior was turned in by his own father, a Cook County sheriff's deputy.
Michael Palomino says what his son did was wrong. But he says prosecutors have exaggerated 17-year-old Raymond Palomino's role in the brutal attack.
Raymond Palomino is one of seven teens charged with robbery and aggravated battery in the weekend beating. He's been charged as an adult, and his bail is set at $100,000. The other cases are being handled in juvenile court.
Police say the beating stemmed from a previous dispute.
In a three-minute video, attackers are seen repeatedly kicking, punching and yelling at the victim.
After the video was posted online, several people identified the younger Palomino, whose face is visible.
