YOUNGSTOWN

Three youths accused of throwing rocks at vehicles on Interstate 680 will remain in detention pending another hearing after they appeared in juvenile court Friday.

They are charged with multiple counts of vehicular vandalism, according to The Vindicator’s broadcast partner, WFMJ-Channel 21.

After spending a night in juvenile detention at the Martin P. Joyce Juvenile Justice Center, the defendants appeared in court in handcuffs and shackles. They are 11, 14 and 15 years of age. The two youngest are brother and sister.

The court entered innocent pleas on their behalf, and at the next hearing, they will be represented by court-appointed defense counsel.

A number of large rocks still litter the shoulder of I-680 under the Wellington Street overpass on the city’s West Side where the rocks were thrown.

More than a half-dozen

drivers reported their

vehicles were hit by rocks Thursday evening.

"Three youths accused of throwing rocks at vehicles on Interstate 680 will remain in detention pending another hearing after they appeared in juvenile court Friday."

There was no penalty for doing this on the sreets in the hood and they didn't know that it was illegal on 680 . Now these kids will end up hating authority over this traumatic experience .

MAKE THE PARENTS PAY!! They should have taught their kids better. And as for the kids, they must be taught a lesson or they will be in court on some other charges sooner than you think.

This isn't going to happen ! If you didn't have full coverage insurance you get nothing . These kids will move on up to bigger and better clashes with society .

They should be charged with attempted manslaughter IMHO.
