    D.A. Charges Four Teenage Boys w/ Animal Killings @ LB Aquarium

    (November 11, 2004) -- The L.A. County District Attorney's office has announced that it has charged four teenage boys -- three 13 and the other 14 -- with the killing of two sharks and a ray at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific over the weekend.

    In a written release, Deputy D.A. Sheila Callaghan (head of the LB juvenile office) said all four minors are scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning in Juvenile Court. All remain in juvenile custody.

    The 13-year-olds each are charged with two counts of commercial burglary, four counts of animal cruelty, two counts of vandalism and two counts of conspiracy to commit animal cruelty. All the charges are felonies.

    The 14-year-old is charged with one count each of commercial burglary and conspiracy to commit animal cruelty. Authorities said he was at the Aquarium only once, while the other boys were there twice -- Sunday and Monday. The minors were arrested by Long Beach police on Monday.

    If the petitions against the minors are sustained (an action that would amount to a conviction in an adult court) the minors could be sentenced to anything from probation in the custody of their families to the California Youth Authority.

    The names of the minors were not be released because of their ages.
