Judge sentences 3 Ohio teens in 'boredom' beating

CINCINNATI (AP) — Three teens who said they severely beat a man on the street because they were bored have been sentenced to various periods of confinement in juvenile facilities.

The three were part of a group of six boys who police said attacked 45-year-old Pat Mahaney in August 2012 because they were bored and looking for something to do. The boys were 13 and 14 at the time.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1kGTMRp ) reports that three of the teens were sentenced Thursday.

A judge sentenced one of the boys to a minimum of one year in a juvenile prison and maximum of his 21st birthday. Another was sentenced to a juvenile facility specializing in providing mental health treatment for offenders. The third will go to a nine-month secured educational and treatment facility.
