An 18-year-old admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to absconding from his placement.

He escaped June 1 from a juvenile home in Olney, Md., and was captured later that month, Deputy State's Attorney Steven Kessell said in court.

The man faced new drug charges through the Hagerstown Police Department and elected to be waived into the adult system, Assistant Public Defender Michael A. Wilson said.

The juvenile system could not offer the offender any more in terms of rehabilitation, Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley said.
