Man Admits To Hanging Raccoon On Family’s Porch

BALTIMORE (AP) — An Essex man has pleaded guilty to hanging a dead raccoon from a noose on the porch of a black family in Middle River.

Joshua Wall, 20, pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to deprive a person of civil rights. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine at sentencing Aug. 17.

According to a statement of facts, an acquaintance of Wall’s had an argument with the son of a black family in April 2010. Wall and four conspirators hatched a plan to scare the family, and two drove around to find a dead raccoon.

According to court documents, Wall and two conspirators made a noose and hung the raccoon on the family’s porch in the middle of the night.

    This occurred at my parents’ house. They’re glad and relieved now that they know who did it and why they did it. They live in a very diverse and friendly neighborhood; you can’t start judging the entire community because of the actions of some teenage thugs.
