County Court Opens Custer School Case

BROKEN BOW – The five juveniles suspected of allegedly vandalizing Custer Elementary School earlier this summer appeared before the Custer County Court to hear charges against them; all five appeared with at least one parent or guardian.

The youths each face two charges: burglary and criminal mischief in excess of $5000 in damage. Both charges would be felonies in adult criminal court: Class IIA and Class IV, respectively.

Their juvenile petitions were filed, and each was appointed a unique attorney; the five will return to court on October 17 for their next hearing.
