Accused bashers
of gay dance diva Kevin Aviance arraigned

The four men arrested in the beating of gay dance diva Kevin Aviance last weekend in New York City have been arraigned on assault charges. Sixteen-year-old Gerard Johnson and 20-year-old Jarell Sears were both charged Monday with "first-degree gang assault" and "first-degree assault as a hate crime" in the beating. The two other men arrested in the assault, Gregory Archie and Akino George, were arraigned on the same charges on Tuesday. None of the four men entered a plea, and bail has been set at $25,000 for each. If convicted, the suspects could face up to 25 years behind bars. Aviance was discharged from Manhattan's Beth Israel Medical Center on Monday with his leg in a brace and his jaw wired shut. (Sirius OutQ News)
