PONTIAC, Mich. (WJBK) - The man who was once known across the country for being convicted of murder at the age of 11 was in front of a judge Friday, this time for a charge of indecent exposure and he had a lot to say.
Nathaniel Abraham was convicted of killing a man when he was just 11 years old. He was released from state supervision in 2007. He's back in jail for allegedly exposing himself to a woman on Monday.
Authorities say a 46-year-old woman told sheriff's deputies that a man who asked for coffee and offered to cut the grass at her Pontiac home had his shorts pulled down.
Abraham was supposed to turn himself in to police on the charges but police had to go find him.
Deputies went looking for him and found him near Montcalm and Baldwin in Pontiac. A Facebook video showed him being tased and arrested but authorities say he also hurt three deputies.
On Friday, Abraham was in court but confused about why he was there.
"They released me Monday. I bonded out. Then the officers see me on the road..." he said in court before being interrupted by the judge.
"I don't even understand why I have these charges. I was tased. Now you've got me here telling me i'm under arrest when i was told i was under arrest for indecent exposure," Abraham said.
He was told by the judge that it's a different case.
After Abraham was released in 2007, he was arrested again for selling drugs out of the trunk of his car. Then he was convicted of assaulting a prison employee most recently was released from prison in 2017.
