Ashburn, VA (Feb. 2, 2017) – Five Loudoun County teens who pleaded guilty to the vandalism of a historic Ashburn schoolhouse that once served black students face a year-long probationary period.
The 16- and 17-year-old defendants each pleaded guilty to one count of destruction of private property and one count of unlawful entry before Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court Avelina Jacob.
Handing down her sentencing this week, Jacob withheld a finding of guilt, provided the juveniles successfully complete probation and a series of requirements outlined by prosecutors as part of the plea agreement. Those include visiting the U.S. Holocaust Museum and “The Day of Remembrance: The 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066” exhibit at the American History Museum. They will also be required to write one book report per month for the next 12 months from a list of 35 selected books.
