Teen Admits To More Church Burglaries

Associated Press - August 31, 2013 4:03 am

A Hutchinson teenager has admitted burglarizing two churches and a grocery store while he was on probation for a string of similar break-ins.

17-year-old Joshua Hickey pleaded guilty to the burglaries Friday in Reno County District Court. Judge Tim Chambers scheduled sentencing for Oct. 4.

Hickey was granted probation in November 2012 after pleading guilty to 14 burglaries of Hutchinson churches and businesses.

But he was sent to jail for 30 days last December for violating probation by failing to report his residence to a Community Corrections supervisor.

Hickey left jail in January and began a new burglary spree within seven hours. The grocery store and one of the churches he burglarized were among those he had broken into previously.

Keep patting these teenagers on the butt and letting them free. They need to be sent to a boot camp for a few years or until they are 21.

Why would any judge grant probation with the crime spree he committed to begin with. Now what are they going to do with him?
