November 02, 2006|by PEPPER BALLARD

A 14-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in Washington County juvenile court that he bit an Oak Hill House staff member on her neck in July.

Disposition for the youth, who now lives in Baltimore with his grandmother, was delayed.

The staff member who was bitten July 12 told Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley, sitting in juvenile court, that the bite did not break her skin.

She said that a couple of boys had talked about biting her on the neck "like a vampire" and he did.

"My biggest concern ... I just want him to learn from the experience and move forward," she said.

Beachley asked the boy to apologize to the staff member. The boy at first mumbled an apology, then was asked to speak louder.

"I apologize," he said, facing the staff member.

"I appreciate that. Thank you," she said.
