WESTMINSTER, Colorado — Five juveniles charged in connection with the guns found on the grounds of a suburban Denver high school have all pleaded guilty to various charges, and the district attorney says the case is officially resolved.
Three hunting rifles and a shotgun were found near Standley Lake High School in Westminster in February. Investigators determined the weapons had been stolen from a nearby home.
Prosecutors said Tuesday that two 16-year-old boys and a 15-year-old boy pleaded guilty to burglary and a misdemeanor weapons charge. Those three boys have each been sentenced to six days' detention and two years' probation.
Two other boys, one 16 and one 15, pleaded guilty to theft by receiving for helping to place the stolen property on school grounds. Each was granted a one-year deferred adjudication.
