The three teens who were involved in a break-in at Sabetha High School in April appeared in court again last week.

After pleading no contest to the charges of theft and criminal damage to property, Seth Harrell, 18, of Sabetha appeared in court Wednesday, Nov. 1. Harrell was sentenced to serve 10 days in jail, and placed on probation for 24 months. Additionally, he was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,011.47, and to complete 200 hours of community work service.

According to Nemaha County Attorney Brad Lippert, Harrell and his attorney have already appealed the sentence. A new date for Harrell has not been set.

Marcus Jackman, 19, and Grant Meyer, 20, both of Sabetha, were previously sentenced to 12 months in jail for theft and six months in jail for criminal damage to property for their roles in the break-in. According to Lippert, they already have served their jail sentences.

On Wednesday, Nov. 1, Jackman and Meyer were ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $1,011.47, as well as completing 200 hours of community work service. They also have been placed on supervised probation for 24 months.
