Teens Sentenced

Fifteen-year-olds Eric Sean Alderfer and Tyler James Hancock
were found guilty of state arson and other charges in February.
They started the Snaking fire while smoking behind their school in
April of last year.

A judge ordered both teens to serve two years probation and
perform 960 hours of community service.

He's scheduled to stand trial June 23rd.
