3 teens sentenced in Woodburn High fire
SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Three teenagers involved in a fire at Woodburn High School in May will have to pay restitution, serve five years of probation, do 40 hours of community service and write letters of apology.
Their sentencing Monday in a plea bargain coincided with the start of school at Woodburn, where damage was estimated at about $6 million and repairs are still under way.
The Salem Statesman Journal reported that 15-year-old Diego Rodriguez-Alvarez, who started the fire by igniting hand sanitizer, will serve four days in juvenile detention.
The other students, 16-year-old Jose Campuzano-Zepeda and 15-year-old Miguel Garcia, received suspended sentences of eight days for encouraging him and not reporting the fire. All served four days after their arrests.
The three apologized in court. The amount of restitution hasn't been set.
