Boy admits to using SUV without permission



A 16-year-old boy admitted in juvenile court Wednesday to the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The boy admitted in a West Virginia court in June 2006 to similar events, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said.

On Feb. 16, 2006, the boy and some of his friends took a Cadillac Escalade before they were arrested in Pennsylvania, Flores said. The luxury SUV belonged to a family friend of the boy, she said.

When the boy turns 17 in May, he wants to join the Army, Assistant Public Defender Brian Hutchison said.

Washington County Circuit Judge M. Kenneth Long, sitting in juvenile court, placed the boy on indefinite supervised probation, to be supervised by authorities in West Virginia. He also ordered the boy to send an apology letter to the owner of the Escalade.

Washington County Circuit Judge M. Kenneth Long, sitting in juvenile court, acquitted the boy of first-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

Witnesses testified that the boy struck an adult male who was trying to discipline him. The adult male was cut with glass but did not have to seek medical attention, witnesses testified.

The boy, who had been living with his grandmother in Montgomery County, Md., was placed in the custody of his mother.




Boy violates probation by disrupting school



A Hagerstown boy admitted in juvenile court Wednesday to a violation of probation.

The boy had been on probation since Jan. 10, but violated its terms when he caused a disruption in school Jan. 30, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said.

Flores had another report that the boy was openly defiant in school Monday, Flores said.

Washington County Circuit Judge M. Kenneth Long, sitting in juvenile court, extended the boy's community detention another 30 days and continued his probation indefinitely.
