CINCINNATI - Four of six teens accused of severely beating a man because they were "bored" have a scheduled court date on Monday.
In August, North College Hill police charged the teens after they say the group attacked 45-year-old Pat Mahaney while he was walking home from the store. Mahaney was hospitalized for four days with internal injuries and bleeding, cuts and bruises.
The teens were indicted under the serious youth offenders statute, which means that while the teens are not being tried as adults and court proceedings will continue in Hamilton County Juvenile Court, the teens could face either a juvenile sentence or an adult sentence if convicted
All were given bonds and released from jail after their arrests.
Three of the teens will appear in court at 10 a.m. and another will appear in court at 1:30 p.m.
