Three juveniles have been charged with felony warrants and a fourth summoned to court following their confession in which one suspect admitted to allegedly throwing a rock through an occupied Plummer-Worley Joint School District school bus on Sept. 11, according to a press release from the Bonner County Sheriff’s office.
One 17-year-old was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated assault. Another 17-year-old and a 14-year-old were arrested and charged with aiding and abetting aggravated assault, according to the sheriff’s office. The fourth juvenile, a 14-year-old, was issued a summons and complaint to appear in court for aiding and abetting aggravated assault.
A municipal court judge found probable cause for the arrest warrants and court order of the teenagers, who all attend Clark Fork Junior/Senior High School, on Tuesday. The three juveniles in custody will have their first court appearance tomorrow morning, Capt. Tim Hemphill wrote in a statement.
Due to the age of the juveniles involved, no names, photographs or videos will be released.
