Teen enters Alford plea to assault charge



A 15-year-old girl admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to second-degree assault. The girl entered an Alford plea, which means she did not admit guilt but conceded the state had sufficient evidence to gain a conviction.

The assault victim was a 14-year-old girl, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said.

The respondent - the juvenile equivalent of a defendant - got out of a vehicle on West Washington Street and slapped a girl who was sitting on a porch, Flores said.

Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley placed the girl on indefinite supervised probation and ordered her to perform community service.

The vehicle was involved in an accident, Flores said.

Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley delayed disposition, the juvenile equivalent of sentencing.




Disposition delayed for boy in sex case



A 15-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to a fourth-degree sex offense.

In April 2007, police responded to Washington County Hospital for a report of a sexual assault. An 11-year-old girl said she fell asleep on a couch.

When she awoke, her pants were pulled down and her male cousin was performing a sexual act on her, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said Wednesday. The girl repeatedly told the boy to get away from her, then told her mother what happened and the mother took the girl to the hospital, Flores said.

Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley delayed disposition, the juvenile equivalent of sentencing until Sept. 19. The boy was to be held in juvenile detention until then, Beachley said.




Teen boy admits to cocaine distribution



A 16-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

On July 24, 2007, the boy took a Washington County Narcotics Task Force confidential informant to someone who sold them a substance that later tested positive as cocaine, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said.

Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley ordered that the boy continue to be held in shelter care pending disposition, the juvenile equivalent of sentencing.
