How does this compensate the home owner? They should go to jail for at least 30 days with a 150 day suspended sentence and be required to make restitution. Failure to pay results in the 150 days to be served. IMHO they should also have "I AM A DUMB ASS NO GOOD JERK" tattooed on their foreheads.

Should have lived on the south side. They would have been sentenced as adults.

This is an excellent example of what is wrong with our legal system. 16 hrs for 10,000 worth of damage? Get real. Underage drinking, breaking and entering, property damage, etc...and they get 16 hrs of community service? I bet they all have learned their lesson. NOT!!
