Accused bullies will stay behind bars

    Seven juveniles accused of brutally bullying a 13-year-old boy will be detained until a Feb. 10th hearing, the Delaware County Times reports.

    The incident got national attention after the alleged bullies posted a video of their actions on the Internet. The video showed the boy being kicked, punched and, at one point, hung in a tree.

    Judge Mary Alice Brennan also ejected press from the proceeding by clearing the courtroom before the hearing.
