The boys weretaken into custody by Sheridan Police Chief Harry Hayes the following day. Parents of one of the Juveniles said they thought the three days the boys spent in Juvenile deten- tion was enoughpunishment,but the board obviously felt this was not the case. Slivers pointed out the pair had committed a serious felony and were pre- vented from going to prison by only one year in their ages. He also stressed the great expense caused by the telephone call by the pair, "who wanted a day off from classes." Davenport, when asked about the boys heo):crd and grades, re- plied they both have been to his office a few times and both had shown some class failures In the past. It was felt that the two week expulsion, withprovisions made for the pair to get needed books and assignments, would be pun- ishment heavily felt by theboys if they are going to make up their already shaky grades by the end of the school semester at the end of this month. Ex- pulsion for a month, which would have resulted in failing grades in all their classes, was dis- cussed, but it was thought that if the pair is going to make up the grades they will be able to do so if they work hard enough "and have what it takes."
