Teens accused of throwing rocks to face juvenile charges

Youths offer apology

September 27, 2010|By Andrea F. Siegel, The Baltimore Sun

Two high school lacrosse players accused of throwing rocks from a moving vehicle at pedestrians in June apologized to the victims Monday, and Anne Arundel Circuit Court Judge Philip T. Caroom ordered the youths tried as juveniles.

Charges against Wade Korvin of Odenton, who was on the Archbishop Spalding team, and Wesley Stryker of Millersville, who played for Severna Park, had bounced between adult and juvenile court for three months. Assistant State's Attorney Michael Bergeson said prosecutors will file juvenile petitions charging the 17-year-olds with assault and related counts stemming from throwing rocks at several people who were injured.

Caroom called the acts "amazingly stupid" but doubted the teens would repeat them. If found delinquent by a juvenile judge, they could be supervised by court and juvenile authorities until age 21, and would have no adult criminal record.
