CLEVELAND- Three Bay Village teens accused in an Ice Bucket Challenge attack were sentenced Monday.
The teens admitted to assault and disorderly conduct during a court appearance earlier this month.
Police said the teens poured a bucket of urine and tobacco spit on a 15-year-old boy with autism before the start of the school year. The entire incident was recorded.
Monday, the attorney for the victim read a statement that the victim wrote to the suspects that said, “Why would you do that to me? I trusted you guys. How dare you.”
The first teen was sentenced to 200 hours community service, and six months probation; that includes 150 hours for assault and disorderly conduct, plus 50 hours for a prior possession of marijuana case. He apologized in court to the victim and his family. He must also write a letter of apology to the victim.
The second teen received six months probation and 100 hours community service (20 hours for a prior arson case.) He must write a letter of apology to the victim, undergo random urine screens and a minimum of 60 minutes of school work every day.
The third teen was ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and write a letter of apology to the victim. He must also show improvement in his grades in English class. The judge terminated the no-contact order between the teen and the victim so they can work to reestablish their friendship.
Two other teens face less serious charges.
