Teens Convicted of Murder Want to Return to School

Posted October 8, 1996 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Three teens convicted of murder have served their time, now they want to go back to school, and that has some Nash County parents worried.

Two of them enrolled at Rocky Mount Senior High this term, but have now been suspended. The third tried to enroll at Northern Nash High when an administrator recognized his name.

All three were convicted of beating a man to death in Rocky Mount in November of 1994.

Some parents say they think the boys should not be allowed to attend school.

By state law, administrators have three options. They can expel the three, send them to the County alternative School, or allow them to stay at their current schools.

Board members are expected to make their decision at a Tuesday night meeting.
