Boy to serve 6 months for taking pot, gun to school

A DeVeaux Junior High student who took a loaded gun and marijuana to school was sentenced yesterday to six months in an Ohio Department of Youth Services facility.

Lucas County Juvenile Court Magistrate John Yerman sentenced Edward DeLuna, 13, to concurrent six-month sentences for charges of delinquency in connection with having a weapon on school grounds and delinquency in connection with burglary.

Young DeLuna, of 3715 Watson Ave., was arrested at school March 5 when school officials found a loaded gun in a boys' restroom and plastic bags of marijuana in his possession. He admitted at a court hearing to having the gun and marijuana and to an unrelated burglary of a Toledo home.

Magistrate Yerman gave the teenager suspended sentences for delinquency in connection with burglary and delinquency in connection with trafficking in marijuana.
