Teen found involved in prescription drug case

January 11, 2007

A 16-year-old boy was found Wednesday in Washington County juvenile court to have been involved in giving a prescription drug to a Williamsport High School classmate in November.

After a short adjudication hearing, the equivalent of an adult trial, Circuit Judge M. Kenneth Long Jr., sitting in juvenile court, found the youth to have been involved in the crime and ordered him to continue on placement that was ordered for a previous offense.

Long warned the boy that in the adult system, "People get prosecuted for murder for this type of thing."

A 15-year-old classmate testified that the 16-year-old gave him a Seroquel pill on Nov. 3, 2006, about 1 p.m. while the two were in school.

The pill, an antipsychotic, made the 15-year-old sleepy, and he lost his balance at work, he testified.
