Home monitoring and curfews for three bullying suspects

    Update: Five of the teens charged with last month’s bullying incident have been sentenced to home monitoring and curfews. The sixth, who initially denied involvement, pleaded to lesser charges today of false imprisonment, reckless endangerment and simple assault. He initially faced felony charges of kidnapping and aggravated assault. He’ll be in custody until a hearing scheduled for March 3.

    Original report: Three of the five teens who admitted to bullying Upper Darby’s Nadin Khoury received sentences today. Two others face hearings today, a sixth faces felony charges and the seventh — responsible for filming the attack — won’t be charged.

     

    A judge ordered the three to 90 days of curfew restrictions and 45 days of electronic home monitoring, the Delaware County Times reports. They’ll also be required to do 16 community service hours each.

    The seven teens hit and kicked Khoury in an attack last month that culminated with them hanging him on a fence by his coat.
