14-Year-Old Boy Sentenced in Milwaukee Group Assault

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A 14-year-old boy will spend two years in a juvenile correction facility for participating in the group assault of an 11-year-old girl over Labor Day.

Milwaukee County Children's Court Judge Dennis Cimpl sharply criticized the boy for participating in the quote "vile and disgusting crime" as he gave him the maximum sentence yesterday.

He says the boy could have told the police but instead participated.

The boy was the only juvenile to go to trial in the case.
