GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Five more people are facing charges in connection with the riot in downtown Grand Rapids this weekend.

John Dupree, 23, is charged with one count of riot, up to 10 years, and two counts of malicious destruction of fire or police property, up to four years, according to Chris Becker, prosecuting attorney, Kent County, today.

Matthew Hurth, 26, is charged with one count of riot and one count of malicious destruction of fire or police property.

Ronald Raymond, 38, is charged with one count of riot, one count of malicious destruction of fire or police property and one count of attempted 3rd-degree arson, a 5-year felony.

The three men are being charged in relation to the destruction of Wyoming police cars during the riot.

Oliva Hull, 24, is charged with one count of riot, one count of breaking and entering a building with intent, a 10-year felony, and one count of malicious destruction of a building less than $200, a misdemeanor offense punishable by a maximum of 93 days.

Hull's charges relate to what occurred at Sundance Bar and Grill, Becker said.

A 15-year-old juvenile is also being charged one count of riot. Since the person is a juvenile and the case will be handled in the juvenile system, Becker couldn't disclose any additional information on the case.

Prosecutor Becker stressed that the individuals facing charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
