16-year-old’s hearing to be open
Sentencing for at least one of the so-called teen bombers will be open, according to an official in the Commonwealth's Attorney's office who says the hearing will occur at 10:30am April 19. The hearing was to occur today, but the case was continued.
And in a a stunning move, the Daily Progress has now named the names of the two elder teens involved in the alleged conspiracy to blow up two County schools. The Hook has not yet been in contact with its on-call media ethicist to investigate the repurcussions of that one. The Progress says in a top-of-the-fold front page story today that it's identifying the miinors because they were convicted.
The Progress was able to get the family of the convicted 15-year-old to lend some family photos and warm-and-fuzzy stories about him– but still not a whiff of the digital chat-room evidence that allegedly led Judge Susan L. Whitlock to convict him.
