Four more Long Beach teens go home

Judge Gibson Lee gave four more girls convicted in the Halloween attack the same sentence as those juveniles he sent home last week: probation, 60 days house arrest, 250 hours of community service and classes in anger management and racial tolerance. The girls sentenced today are 13, 14 and 17. All have been in custody already for three months. One more youth awaits sentencing, probably tomorrow. LAT, Press-Telegram
