Two teens who admitted painting graffiti on a Hancock building were "banished" from that town Wednesday by Washington County Circuit Judge Kennedy Boone.
The boys, ages 14 and 16, admitted one count each of malicious destruction of property on the Zimmerman's Auction building June 15-16.
Neither teen lives in Hancock.
Other charges, including more graffiti and setting a bench on fire, were dismissed in exchange for the pleas.
The older boy, who had been detained at the Finan Center in Cumberland, Md., was returned there pending sentencing in this case.
Assistant State's Attorney Duane Gigeous said Hancock Police Chief Donald Gossage had dispersed several youths from Canal Street earlier on June 15 for using tobacco.
