NORWICH – After spending five days in juvenile detention centers, three youths accused of vandalizing two buildings and causing over $200,000 in damages, admitted to one of the allegations against them and will return home to their parents.
With defense attorneys John Cameron, Adam Spence and Paul Tompkins representing the Norwich teens, the three boys stood before Family Court Judge W. Howard Sullivan Wednesday. Prosecuting the case is Frank Revoir, Jr.
The three youths, who last week denied the accusations brought against them, all admitted to the first count of third degree burglary in connection with the burglary and vandalism taking place the South Broad Street Norwich Jewish Center at approximately 5 p.m. April 6.
Another petition filed by Revoir indicates the youths could also face prosecution of criminal mischief in the fourth degree. The petition filed last week is in reference to a break-in that occurred the same day at the Chenango County Council of the Arts building, 27 W. Main St. All three defendants denied that allegation and it was adjourned by the court.
