HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) -- Three teenage boys have pleaded guilty to charges after a classmate's hair was set on fire on a school bus in southwest Ohio.
A 17-year-old, a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old boy entered their pleas Tuesday in Butler County Juvenile Court in Hamilton.
The 15-year-old and the 17-year-old pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated assault and will remain in juvenile detention until sentencing May 27.
The 16-year-old pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and will be electronically monitored at home until sentencing.
The Hamilton JournalNews reports that 16-year-old Devin Lewis says he was on a Middletown school bus Feb. 4 when someone pulled off his hood.
He says he jerked his head back when a student held a lighter in front of his face and another student then set his hair on fire.
