Waycross third graders accept plea deal

WAYCROSS, GA (WALB) - Two of the three Ware County children charged in a plot to attack their teacher accepted plea deals in a Waycross juvenile courtroom.

But a gag order has sealed the details of the case and the plea agreements.

Three third graders, ages 8 to 10, were charged with possession of weapons on school grounds and conspiracy to commit a crime of aggravated assault back in April.

They, along with six other third graders, were suspended from Center Elementary School after school administrators uncovered a plot to hurt their teacher.

They even brought a bag of weapons to school.

Two students, a girl and a boy, accepted plea deals.

Another girl did not.

A family representative says they hope to clear her record of these charges and help her get back to a normal life.

"Our main interest is the child. She's a child of tender years and we feel certain that this has affected her in some kind of way. We would like to help her deal with what's happening," says Rev. Thomas Bailey.

We're told the case should resume behind closed doors sometime next week.
