HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Four more teenagers accused of conspiring to carry out a shooting at Hutchinson High School have been sentenced to probation.
The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/1MHbmO4 ) reports that the teens were sentenced after each pleaded no contest Tuesday to felony criminal threat. Under a plea agreement, prosecutors dismissed solicitation to commit first-degree murder charges.
District Judge Patricia Macke Dick also ordered the four to write a letter of apology to Hutchinson High School. A teen who pleaded guilty earlier this month also was ordered to write a letter of apology and sentenced to probation.
Police arrested the five, including two who attended Hutchinson High School and one Haven High, after a parent contacted the school's principal. School officials then contacted Hutchinson police.
Arrested April 29, they remained in detention until July 1.
