Teens Won't Face Adult Charges

Share this post

Two teenagers arrested after police say an explosive device was found in a backpack at the La Porte County Fair earlier this month are not being charged as adults. La Porte County's prosecutor tells the Times says the crime did not qualify for an automatic waiver into adult court, and since the suspects don't have a criminal history the case wasn't eligible for juvenile court officials to request a waiver. Police allege one of the teens made the so-called 'sparkler bomb' and the other took it to the fairgrounds.  Police say the device could have caused serious harm, but tell the newspaper they do not believe the suspects intended to hurt anyone.
