Kyle Bower will probably always remember the date, Jan. 4, 2011.
It’s not his birthday, anniversary or graduation. Instead, it was the day the 19-year-old pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and was then sworn in as a borough council member.
The Alburtis, Pa., teen was sentenced to probation, the Associated Press reports, after pleading guilty to throwing a brick through his ex-girlfriend’s window and slipping out of his handcuffs in an alcohol-related arrest.
Bowers told the judge he’ stopped drinking and is pursuing a GED, though he still faces other charges in Berks County.
