Teen returned to treatment center


A 14-year-old girl admitted Wednesday in Washington County juvenile court to assaulting a police officer in December and was sent back to The Jefferson School, a residential treatment center in Frederick County, by a Circuit judge.

On Dec. 26, 2004, at about 10 p.m., the girl "swung her purse" at Hagerstown Police Department Officer Sue Lamb in the parking lot of Days Inn on Dual Highway and "struck her in the chest" after Lamb confronted the girl, who had just been reported missing by her mother, Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said.

Circuit Judge Frederick C. Wright III, sitting in juvenile court, placed the girl on indefinite supervised probation and ordered her to cooperate with The Jefferson School.

"It seems Jefferson School is an appropriate place now," he said.

Circuit Judge Frederick C. Wright III, sitting in juvenile court, ordered the girl placed at Mountain Manor Treatment Center.

"She has to be able to show she's willing to meet these problems," he said.

Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said that the girl used her mother's debit card twice without her mother's permission in January to withdraw money from the account "to buy clothes and get heroin."

She said the girl had been known to run away from her parents' home and from other placements.
