Lets run some tests on these children including a physiological profile.........yep, confirmed losers. The tax payers will pay to keep these children for a while, maybe all their lives on and off.

Hey, I'm not into blaming the victim here, but what did this guy think he was going to the motel for? The article doesn't mention his age. If he was looking for sex, judging by the pictures he was a desperate guy.

All 5 are, of course, sad, but financially it should work out fairly well for any bent out of shape "taxpayers" -- fines to the perpetrators and to the 2 bars that had apparently served at least 4 minors, should pretty much cover the cost of the trials, etc.
Bigger problem is how to get the 4 young people straightened out so they can go on to lead successful lives!

These jerks are all underage. What were they doing at the bar in the first place? If it was before 9 and the bar serves food, ok!? Does Dave's serve food?

It looks like they are right where they need to be, jail. Hope they're there for awhile! Scum.

That is a good question, how to get them straighten out.
If you look at the pictures closely, they look like they may be under the influence of drugs, possibly cocaine. I'm sure they were probably tested for drugs when they were arrested, and if they came up positive, they were told not to use again.
But then they were all released on bail except the one. If they are hooked on drugs and do not get the proper treatment, they will be right back to a life of crime.
The question is, where do they get the help? If a person doesn't have the money or the knowledge as to how to get help, they are pretty much lost.
It is a sad situation that a lot of the young ones are getting into. They let the wolves get them into cocaine or herion and then they lead a life of crime, trying to get money for the next fix.
I am not making excuses for what they did. They are young adults and should have used better judgement, before they messed up their lives. But I do hope that someone, somehow came help them get their lives back on track, before somebody winds up dead.
Will somebody please

with strangers ,a minor,for sex?? drugs?? I do not think it ok to assault anyone,but he could have used better judgement on his part as well.

Ah yes, let's victimize the victim here.

Surely, the fellow could have used better judgement, but these deliquents sure did have other pre-meditative motives on their minds.

Their parents must be so proud.

"Gift, Banks-Carbaugh and Shaffer have been released on $50,000 bail each. Guyer remains in Franklin County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail."

MAN, they must not have needed money that bad if someone they knew bailed 3 of them out at that price. My goodness!

Sorry Chelsea Gift I am not buying it!! You used someones stolen ID who happened to be your neighbors. Did you call the cops when the man was assaulted? No, you fled and left him there bloody.
Looks like you are going to have a record now just like your "best friends" There are no Do Overs and say good bye to your Good Job, not going to happen.

First of all, you probably shouldn’t have ran your mouth on a board. It’s called incriminating yourself you silly little girl. Second of all I HIGHLY doubt that you get straight “A’s”. You can’t even speak correctly. I have no doubt that your parents love you more than anything in the whole world. But think about this. Now they love you and are ashamed at what you did. And this whole thing about “being in the wrong place at the wrong time”, give me a break! Your whole story is BS.“Things got out of hand” NO, really??? Looks like you need some new friends.
