Teen sentenced in stabbing at middle school

SINKING SPRING, Pa. (AP) — A 14-year-old boy has been sentenced to up to a year in a juvenile treatment center for stabbing a classmate at their eastern Pennsylvania middle school.

The eighth-grader admitted at a hearing earlier this month that he had stabbed the other boy three times with a pocketknife at Wilson Southern Middle School on Jan. 15. The Reading Eagle reports Juvenile Judge Jeffrey Sprecher on Tuesday sentenced the teen to 9 to 12 months at the juvenile treatment facility.

The hearing was closed after prosecutors and the teen’s attorney noted the boy’s age and said a mental-health issue could arise.

The victim was treated for wounds to the arm and shoulder blade.

Police have said a dispute on a social media site may have precipitated the altercation.
