MARBLE FALLS, Texas (KXAN) - Six Marble Falls teens who were charged with misdemeanor telephone harassment for sending lewd and harassing text messages to a rival football player will not face a day in court.
Benjamin Causgrove, Donald Holland, Garrett Reitz, Zach Wagner and Jacob Wieweck, all age 17, along with another minor, each completed 30 hours of community service, attended a cyber bully seminar and wrote letters of apologies to the Dripping Springs football player, their lawyer Eddie Shell told KXAN Wednesday via phone. In return, Shell said the prosecutor decided not to take the case to court.
Shell said those charges will not appear on any of the teen's records.
Back in November, that Dripping Springs football player for lewd and threatening text messages on his cell phone and told his parents.
The messages contained homosexual slurs and profanities.
An arrest warrant shows one message said, "You better be prepared to get ripped limb from to ******* limb Friday night you big *****."
Another read, "Oh, so you are going to be a little ***** and not text back *****?"
In early January, a plea deal was offered in the case . Under the offering, if the teenagers complete an undecided amount of community service, write letters of apology and take a bullying class, they will avoid jail time and fines.
The teen's parents were presented with the plea deal but did not take it.
The misdemeanor charge carried up to a six-month prison sentence.
