Charges Resolved Against Teens Involved in Homecoming Stunt
FARMINGTON (AP) - The case has been resolved for 16 Farmington high school students involved in a homecoming stunt that police described as dangerous.
The students were charged in Dakota County following the incident during homecoming week last year. Senior students commandeered four juniors, bound their hands, put two in the trunk of a car and two in the back seat. Other teens involved in the prank followed in separate vehicles.
Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom says the 17-year-old female driver of the car pleaded guilty to a gross misdemeanor charge and was sentenced to six months of probation and 25 hours of community service Tuesday.
The other 15 teens involved accepted a diversion program for a disorderly conduct charge and are required to attend special classes and do community work.
