and asked i he was taking the in-cident seriously enough. I told her,“Yes, I could be at the morgue rightnow or you could be a vegetable– that’s pretty serious.”Warren County Common-wealth’s Attorney Brian Maddensaid in the case o occupied build-ings or vehicles being red into,i malice is proven, the charge israised to a Class IV elony with apotential ne o up to $100,000and a sentence o to 10 years. As juveniles, that incarceration wouldbe in a juvenile detention acility –at least until the suspects reach theage o 1. Madden observed thatdependent on the nature o theincident those upper punishmentranges generally reect sentencesgiven to adults.Without malice proven the ringinto occupied structures and ve-hicles are Class VI elonies, as are vandalism charges with damagesover $1000. Te vandalisms result-ing in less than $1000 in damagesare Class I misdemeanors.Te misdemeanor charges eachcarry potential punishments o upto a $,500 ne and 1 months o incarceration. Te Class VI elony charges carry the same potentialne and rom one to ve years o incarceration, again in a juvenilecorrectional acility until the ageo 1.According to the Oct. 17 policepress release “Each juvenile acesone count each per incident o van-dalism.” As o Oct. 1st the num-ber o related incident reports hadreached “the upper 60s” accordingto lead FRPD Investigator JasonRyman. As o that date no new re-ports had been received or severaldays and Ryman said he hoped all victims had been accounted or.Ryman told us the two juvenilesuspects who conessed to the in-cidents had no history o previoustrouble with the law – “Tey werenot on our radar at all,” Ryman saido the two youths. He added thatthe parents o both boys had beentotally cooperative with authori-ties.Fortunately or those parents,according to the Commonwealth’sAttorney state law no longer holdsthem nancially liable or crimescommitted by their children. Ry-man agreed with my estimate,based in part on my $10 repairbill rom AGE o Middletown orreplacement o a back panel win-dow or a 000 Jeep Cherokee, thatthe total restitution amount couldend up being somewhere between$0,000 and $30,000. Te juvenileswill become liable or that restitu-tion when they reach their 18thbirthdays.
Ater the initial report o theWashington Street incident theFRPD press release stated, “Fromthat point, police responded tonumerous similar calls involvingbuildings and vehicles through-out the night. Additional patrolpersonnel as well as criminal de-tectives were called in due to theextent o the situation. Te dam-age was ound to have come rom aglass marble type o object similarto what is used with a slingshot.“Detectives were able to identiy two potential suspects throughobservation o several security sys-tems in the aected area,” the Oct.17 FRPD press release stated.According to inormation re-ceived by this paper, one piece o evidence used to ID the suspectswas security video rom a local re-tailer showing the suspects eitherbuying or stealing marbles earlierthat day. Lead Investigator Rymandeclined to comment on the spe-cics o evidence assembled in thecase.“At approximately 1 AM (0100hours) on Oct. 14, a 17-year-old juvenile was interviewed at theirresidence where a ull voluntary conession was obtained,” the po-lice press release stated. “Investiga-tion continued through the nightand into the ollowing day. At ap-proximately :45 PM (1445 hours)on Oct. 14, another 17-year-old juvenile was interviewed at the po-lice department where another ullconession was obtained.”Te investigation continues andno charges had yet been led ora hearing date set in the cases by press time.
