LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Four teens accused of leaving threatening notes on 14 Logan-area homes that were decorated for Christmas will likely NOT serve any jail time.
Prosecutor Lee Edwards says he will most likely recommend community service and a fine for the four 18-year-olds. He says Bret Anderson, Justin Buck, Jenna Carter and Lindsey Stewart each pleaded NOT guilty to 14 counts of harassment, one for each home that got a note.
Last month, several residents found notes taped to their front doors telling them their home would burn down if Christmas lights were NOT kept off until December 14. The note also said residents would burn in hell.
Once the media found out about the notes, the teens turned themselves in. Police say the teens feel remorseful and said they never planned on burning any homes down.
