Teen sentenced for cross burning in northern Kentucky
A northern Kentucky teenager has been sentenced to 21 months in juvenile detention for his role in a cross burning on a black family's lawn. US District Judge William Bertelsman handed down the maximum sentence yesterday for the civil-rights violation, saying he was "sending a message." The teen could have received as little as 15 months. His name has not been released because of his age. Two others are awaiting sentencing in their roles in the incident in which a three-foot cross was burned on the front lawn of a Burlington, Kentucky, family's home.
The next day, the three donned white hoods and yelled racial slurs as they threw rocks at the family's car. Bertelsman told the teenager that he seems to have been the ringleader.
