Three Santa Clara teens who as a prank grabbed a young jogger and threw her in the back of their locked, covered pickup, have pleaded guilty in juvenile court to felony kidnapping.
Angela Adams, a Washington County juvenile prosecutor, said the three boys two who are 16 and the other 17 pleaded guilty last month to third-degree felony kidnapping. They were all sentenced to 30 days in juvenile detention and probation. Those sentences were suspended as long as the teens don't commit any additional crimes, complete a victimization treatment program, pay restitution to the victim and stay away from the girl except to complete a victim-offender mediation program administered through juvenile court.
Adams said the victim and her family asked that the teens not be locked up for their crime.
