Fall River Teen To Go Under Treatment After Posting Bail

(Beaver Dam) The attorney representing a Fall River teen accused of Attempted First-Degree Intentional Homicide says his client will be receiving treatment. In a statement, Christopher Van Wagner noted that Dylan Lenz has gone directly into treatment where he will remain per the professional advice of his medical providers.
Van Wagner adds that Lenz will not be returning to work or school at this time after posting his $150,000 cash bond on Monday. In his statement, Van Wagner asks that all remember that the defendant is only 17-years-old and to keep in mind that he is presumed innocent and has only been accused. He says that Lenz is under strict restrictions while on bond and his family deserves their privacy.
According to the complaint, Lenz met up with the juvenile victim from Beaver Dam on October 15th. He allegedly choked and stabbed her with a boxcutter before she fled screaming from his vehicle near the Wal-Mart parking lot. Lenz apparently drove over her as she tripped running down a hill.
He also reportedly admitted to law enforcement that he had (quote) “bad thoughts about murdering people.” The victim was still in the ICU in critical condition at last word.
If convicted, Lenz faces up to 60 years in prison. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 17th.
