SKOKIE -- Three teenagers were sentenced to supervision and community service Friday for their roles in a violent hazing incident involving Glenbrook North High School students, officials said.
Criminal Court Judge Timothy Chambers found the three guilty of two counts of misdemeanor battery apiece after they stipulated to the facts in the case, according to Tom Stanton, a spokesman for the Cook County state's attorney's office.
Trevor Roberts, 18, and Sarah Rosselli, 18, were each sentenced to 18 months of supervision and 60 hours of community service. Jennifer Larson, 18, was given a year of supervision and 50 hours of community service, Stanton said.
All three also were ordered to have no contact with the victims and to undergo alcohol and drug evaluation.
Friday's sentencing brought to five the number of teens sentenced in connection with the case. Thursday, Marnie Gaule, 18, also stipulated to the facts in the case and was found guilty by Chambers, who sentenced her to 50 hours of community service and a year of supervision.
In July, Grant Lustig, 18, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of an alcoholic beverage by a minor, a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to two years' probation and ordered to perform 30 days of community service and undergo alcohol evaluation.
More than a dozen youths were charged in the incident, which gained worldwide attention as videotapes of it were played on news programs. The tapes show junior girls from Glenbrook North being covered with mud, paint, feces and garbage as onlookers, some hoisting beer cups, cheered.
If Mike is an ass#@!&, what are these "children," many of whom have had every advantage in life but still turned out to be nothing but thugs when they beat up their own friends while others cheered?
