Columbia boy admits involvement in rock-throwing

February 08, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 16-year-old Columbia boy has admitted involvement in a rock-throwing incident that injured a Sun deliverywoman last summer.

The teen-ager, who was charged with three counts of reckless endangerment, admitted involvement as part of an agreement with prosecutors Jan. 27, said Juvenile and Domestic Master Nancy L. Haslinger.

The boy told police he threw a "baseball-sized" rock and heard a "thud" Aug. 26. Lynn McKissic was struck in the head through an open window.

McKissic suffered head and eye injuries, and has problems with her vision.

Disposition of the case has been scheduled for early April, Haslinger said.
