Judge detains youth for threat of assault



A boy who previously admitted to breaking into cars for money for food was detained Wednesday in juvenile court by Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley because he threatened to assault another boy.

The boy needed to "feel ramifications" of his actions, and the judge didn't believe the boy needed money for food because there was food in his home, Beachley said.

After a couple of days in the children's detention center, the boy will be released to his family, Beachley said.
