Teen pleads guilty to assaulting teacher
CARLTON, Minn. (AP) — A 17-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to punching a Barnum High School teacher who told him to remove his headphones.
The Duluth News Tribune reports the teen pleaded guilty Tuesday to third-degree assault, a felony.
The judge sentenced the boy to 90 days in a juvenile facility and placed him on supervised probation until he turns 18 on Nov. 24.
As part of his probation, the boy must pay restitution and write a letter of apology.
According to a juvenile delinquency petition, the teen told a sheriff's deputy that he woke up on the wrong side of the bed Friday, and when a teacher in shop class told him to remove his earphones he decided to punch him in the face.
The teacher was treated at a hospital and released.
