BAY VILLAGE, OH (WOIO) - Sources are telling 19 Action News the Prosecutor's Office could be announcing as early as next week a decision to charge or not to charge five suspects in the cruel ice bucket challenge incident that happened in Bay Village.
In August, police say five teenagers poured a mixture of bodily fluids on top of a 15-year-old boy. They did it at one of the boys' homes that the kids call The Garage. A place where the group of teens hung out all summer long.
Ten days and counting since the Bay Village Police Department handed over their investigation to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office.
Meanwhile over at Bay High School sources say the victim and the five suspects are all back in class together, which makes sense because they are all good friends.
Last month 19 Action News Investigative Reporter Scott Taylor was the first to tell you that the five suspects didn't know that their friend was autistic and all of them play pranks on each other. Now one of the suspect's attorney is backing up that claim.
If charged with assault the five could plea it down to disorderly conduct or a judge could view them as first time offenders and put a conviction on hold. With good behavior the case could be expunged in a year.
