13-year-old placed back in rehab program A 13-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to carrying a handgun. The boy had been in a rehabilitation program and was home in Hagerstown on a home pass when the incident involving the handgun occurred, Department of Juvenile Services officials said. Hagerstown Police found the boy in possession of a handgun in October during a firearm trade that went bad, Assistant State's Attorney Steven Kessell said Wednesday. Possession of handguns indicates a "criminal attitude," Washington County Circuit Judge Frederick C. Wright III told the boy. Wright placed the boy back in the rehabilitation program he had been in, although the boy now is to start over from the beginning of the program, Department of Juvenile Services officials said.
