Teen boy admits to using marijuana



A 17-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to using marijuana.

On Feb. 24, 2007, a Washington County Sheriff's Department deputy saw the boy with a cigarette, asked him his age and smelled unsmoked marijuana, Assistant State's Attorney Gina Cirincion said during her statement of facts in Washington County Circuit Court.

The boy consented to a search, and the deputy found a glass smoking device and a baggie of marijuana, Cirincion said.

The boy now is employed full time, his defense attorney said.

Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley, sitting in juvenile court, sentenced the boy to six months of supervised probation and ordered him to abstain from illegal drugs and alcohol.
