Dearborn Teens Face Charges in Cell Phone Store Break-in

Two 17-year-old Dearborn residents face a preliminary exam on Dec. 21 for their alleged involvement in a break-in at the All Wireless cell phone store.

Two Dearborn teenagers face charges stemming from an alleged break-in at the All Wireless cell phone store last week on the city’s east side, according to a statement from the Dearborn Police Department.

Mohamad Raychouni, a 17-year-old resident of Dearborn, was arraigned Dec. 9 on charges of breaking and entering-a building with intent and stolen property-receiving and concealing.

Ali Bazzi, also 17 of Dearborn, was arraigned on a charge of stolen property-receiving and concealing.

If convicted, the breaking and entering charge carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison, and the stolen property charge carries a penalty up to 5 years.

Raychouni and Bazzi are accused of breaking into the All Wireless store at approximately 1 a.m. on Dec. 7.

Dearborn police arrested the two teens west of the store. Police said the teens had stolen phones in their possession when they were arrested.

Raychouni and Bazzi are scheduled to have a preliminary exam at 19th District Court on Dec. 21.

I can't stand it when someone knows a person who is a criminal and says they don't deserve jail time and that they should do something else! You do the crime you do the time. Ten years is not a harsh punishment at all. They ruined the store owner's life.

These kids are nice kids I think they should go to college and get a job and stop doing this stupid things .......

Dear Brothers & Sisters Don't Be So Cruel. I Believe If They Made A Mistake & They're Found Guilty Of It They Surely Should Be Punished For It But Not That of A Severe Punishment, Cmon He's Only 17 & 10 Years Of Jail? =? Getting Out the Jail Being 27. Wasting Half Of His Life In Jail, Instead If He Committed The Crime Then Put Him On Probation, Make Them Do Community Service, Make Them Go Back & Arrange Phones & Clean Phones Everyday So They Realize Their Mistake With Embarrasement & At Same Time They're Able to Live Life & Know Never To Make That Mistake Again, Putting Them In Jail Will Just Make It Worser!.. & Again My Dear Brothers If You Guys Are Right in Your Place You Know You Havn't Made That Mistake of Stealing Then just Have Some Patience & Keep Full Faith In Allah Subhan Wa T'ala He'll Help You Get Through It...IN'SHA'ALLAH !

So sad how some people still feel bad for criminals. You do the crime, you face the time. It is a simple equation. I do feel bad, but a statement must be sent and if a statement has to be sent through these "thugs", then I'm in support of it. I also think the parents in Dearborn must regain control of their households because I am just about sure things like this wouldn't happen if they had more control in there households. By the way, I've had just about enough of everyone acting like they were raised in such a rough setting. In reality, you children of Dearborn were raised no where but east Dearborn. None of you were raised in the slums of Detroit so stop acting like it. -unanimous

Its common sense , if ur gonna break into a building and try to steal, your gonna get caught. Idiots.

@Mahmoud: How Do You Know For Sure That They Were At Fault?? & Yes 10 Years Is Alottt...I Know You Wouldn't Want To Waiste Your Life In Jail for 10 Years! & Yes If They Committed The Crime Then They Should Be Punished, & Fill In For All They Did & "Make" The Store Owner's Life.

What these children need is guidance. It is true that a crime was committed here, they should be punished definitely. 10 years for a 17 year old... Come on now, lets better our youth not ruin their lives. They deserve a punishment they will learn from. It still baffles me that 17 year olds can leave their homes at their convenice.
DearbornNotByChoice December 16, 2012 at 03:14 AM
Yo Man this be Five O on some fluffstuff... dey be trippin dats fasho but as ma mainsqueeze once said, locked up and dey wont let me out!! On a completely unrelated note, in an economic standpoint, theoretically, serving 10 years for a B&E charge is too much because it is too close to other, much greater charges, such as illegal possession of weapons or drug trafficking. This might motivate some people have committed a non-life threatening crime, to commit a more severe crime while they are at it, since the difference in jail time is minute. On some real talk doe, dey be trippin! Lawdd hav mercy! Ratchet! Triflin! You FUGAYZEE wit it!
Tom B December 16, 2012 at 01:52 PM
If they didn't get caught, would they be sorry? Certainly not. They would be successful criminals who would, probably, have done this again. Or maybe they have done this before. They need to be punished with restitution, but not for 10 years. As for the families, "you get what you reap".

Just to be clear on the current state of issues that is underhand, everyone here that says they deserve ten years In prison is either mentally challenged or completely retarted. It's a good thing none of you are judges in the American law system, because you would be ruining the lives of hundreds every day. You don't throw children in jail for ten years for robbery, instead you put them in a rehabilitation program for them to understand exactly what they did wrong. I from experience know that the alleged criminal in this case has mental distortions and is on medication for mental issues I am not at liberty to say. Another thing, throwing them in jail will not set the example, that is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. When people break in to steal, they are either doing it for greed or out of sheer necessity, and both those courses blind someone to future consequence. So all future thieves won't sit and say, "oh no we can't rob them, we will go to jail." If anything at all, we should be proud of the people who set the real example on that night. The Dearborn police station set an amazing example through quick and decisive action.

What these "children" SHOULD have gotten BEFORE the crime was guidance. It seems ridiculous to me to think a 17 year old wouldn't know that there are consequences to breaking into a store if caught. It's now up to the court system. And DearbornNotByChoice, are you kidding me? "Motivate some ..to commit a more severe crime.... What? That's exactly the kind of stupid comment we don't need. And if that's your thought process, how stupid are you? If Dearborn isn't your choice, I suggest Detroit. That kind of talk belongs there, not here.
DearbornNotByChoice December 16, 2012 at 05:32 PM
As Sam stated, 10 years for robbery is simply too much. There is a reason why out judicial system is effective in its choice of punishment. There is a reasonable punishment for everything and 10 years for a B&E is not justice. I am totally against what these kids did, however, if a B&E gets a 10 year bid, what would an armed robbery get? Capital Punishment? Wrong. An armed robbery carries an average 12-Year bid. Do some logic in your state of mind, 12 years for an armed robbery and 10 years for B&E is not just. What I was explaining is an established economic theory that is IMPLEMENTED in the United States law. Let me explain it better. The punishment for the intensity of the crime should be rational. Having rational punishments better assists authorities and law enforcers bargain and negotiate with the 'criminals' (or 'crime committers' for the lack of a better term). Imagine a world where a Breaking & Entering has a 10 year jail sentence, and an armed robbery carries a 12-Year sentence -> Two 17 year old kids are fleeing for a Break & Enter, might also commit an armed robbery, due to the LITTLE difference in jail time. "Im already doing 10 years, If I get caught for holding this store up it's only 2 more years". This is why they have rational punishment. 10 Years is simply too much. On another note, please excuse my joking ignorance before & after my real paragraph, that was just to lighten the mood.

Jean, you are right. We should give these kids a job in the store they robbed, and pay them a living wage of at least $30 per hour so they won't need to be thieves. At the very least, one of them should join the union to make sure other young kids get the same break. Now if this happened in Saudi Arabia, would they lose a hand, or just get stoned to death? Reality check. They will look meek in court, be sorrowful, and get probation. With any luck, their parents will give them a worse punishment, as that is where the teaching of right and wrong broke down, and needs to be fixed. Next time, the owner may be working late doing inventory, and they could be shot dead over a couple of cell phones. They are lucky. Now they need to wise up and be smart.
Hass December 17, 2012 at 12:21 AM
Stupid kids lock them up it would be like a rehab for them. But I can't judge anyone you don't know what they go through at home or what they deal with in there everyday life
Lee Jacobsen December 17, 2012 at 04:03 PM
Dearborn.....you seem to question the rationality of the United States law. I am certainly no expert in Sharia law but does it appear to be more rational with quick justice? Many countries use it. Note the following link concerning Sharia law and theft, and how they figure out whether the hand should be taken off, or perhaps the whole arm? Appears to be based on value of the theft.....these lads are lucky to be in the USA http://qa.sunnipath.com/issue_view.asp?HD=1&ID=1895&CATE=12

If they are convicted of B & E and it is their first offense the punishment should be 200 hours of court supervised community service plus restitutuion to the cell store owner and 10 year ban on cell phone ownership.

Knowing both of them especially raychouni, hes a good kid and he made one mistake that im surprised he even did, but they dont deserve 10 years in prison, they deserve to go get an education and move on, i think they learned there lesson by now.

Hussien Faraj December 21, 2012 at 10:00 PM
It doesn't matter. They did the crime. They will do the time. Nothing but trouble and have no futures ahead of them. Going to jail will teach them a lesson and put them on the right path
Sue Johnson January 19, 2013 at 12:19 AM
These kids did wrong but they don't deserve to have their youth ripped from them. If anything give them 10 years of community service, not prison. Create a youth group, do something. Most of all, may Allah be with them on their court date. I do not protect thieves and robbers and people who do haram, but when they do a petty crime at a young age, hard time is just unfair. Aside from that, these boys need a reality check, some role models in their Life or something
