Teen admits to driving without a license



A 15-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in Washington County juvenile court to driving without a license.

The boy's neighbor called police after watching the boy drive around the neighborhood in a truck without tags or registration, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said.

The incident happened one month after the boy got off probation in another matter, Flores said.

"He's got to understand there are rules for everybody," said Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley, who was sitting in juvenile court.

The boy was ordered detained at Western Maryland Children's Center pending another court appearance.

Since he got the referrals in March, the boy has turned around and is now behaving well and earning good grades, school officials said.

The boy said he wanted to change because he's tired of getting in trouble.

Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley, sitting in juvenile court, ordered the boy to remain on probation.




Girl admits missing school several days



A 14-year-old girl was admitted to a shelter at San Mar Children's Home Wednesday after she admitted that she didn't go to school for several days, which violated a court order for protective supervision.

The girl attended only six of the last 30 days of school, Department of Juvenile Services officials said.

"You need to get educational services," Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley, sitting in juvenile court, told the girl. He also ordered her to undergo psychological testing.
