Martin MacDonald, the man charged with pushing Chase Coleman, appeared in court on Wednesday.
MacDonald was offered a plea deal by the judge, which includes 120 hours of in-person community service. Included in the community service will be classes to increase his education on autism. The classes will last for four weeks. He will work with AutismUp if he accepts the deal.
Also included in the plea deal are anger management classes and a two year order of protection.
Chase Coleman and his family were in court today. They traveled from Syracuse to attend.
MacDonald is scheduled to appear back in court on November 17 at 2 p.m. to respond to the plea deal.
