Teen admits driving while restricted



A 17-year-old girl admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to driving a vehicle while in violation of a license restriction.

The girl had been drinking alcohol and later was in a single-vehicle accident, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said. The girl, who fractured her leg in the accident and was hospitalized for a week, had a blood-alcohol content of .01 when deputies responded to the accident.

Washington County Circuit Judge Donald Beachley, who was sitting in juvenile court, said he was convinced the girl learned a lesson from the situation.

Beachley ordered the girl to serve six months of supervised probation.

He was on probation after admitting in July to his involvement with a conspiracy to commit felony theft.

The boy, who has been staying with his 15-year-old girlfriend's parents, was placed in detention pending his placement Friday in an inpatient treatment program.




Teen admits assaulting father



A 17-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to assaulting his father. Hagerstown police responded Oct. 2 to a report of an assault.

The boy had cornered his father in the home's bathroom and punched him several times with a closed fist, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said. With his admission, the boy violated his probation.

He had been placed in shelter care in Garrett County, where he was charged with destruction of property and other crimes in an incident there, Department of Juvenile Services officials said.

Washington County Circuit Judge Donald Beachley, who was sitting in juvenile court, delayed disposition, the juvenile equivalent of sentencing. Beachley also ordered a psychological exam.




Teen admits stealing cell phone and case



A 15-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to theft of less than $100.

The boy asked to use someone's cell phone and walked off with the phone, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said. The phone was sold to someone else, she said.

For that offense and a previous offense, Washington County Circuit Judge Donald Beachley, who was sitting in juvenile court, ordered the boy be placed in detention pending his placement in an appropriate 60- to 90-day program.

Beachley also ordered the boy to pay $20 in restitution for a leather cell phone case that wasn't recovered and $110 in restitution for impound fees on a mo-ped he had taken earlier.
