PA: Shenandoah teen faces house arrest for murder of Luis Ramirez

Shenandoah teen faces house arrest - News - Citizens Voice
The Shenandoah teenager charged as a juvenile in connection with the fatal beating in July 2008 of an illegal Mexican immigrant in Shenandoah is under house arrest for now and will be on probation until he turns 21, a Schuylkill County judge ruled Monday.

Brian Scully, 18, cannot be punished after he turns 21 because he was charged as a juvenile, but he will be supervised until that date, according to Assistant District Attorney A.J. Serina.

"He's placed on probation until age 21," Serina said after Scully's hearing before President Judge William E. Baldwin. "He's on house arrest until the judge says otherwise."

Baldwin, who had ruled May 18 that Scully was delinquent and was the "instigator" of the incident that drew worldwide attention to Shenandoah, also ordered that he be subject to alcohol monitoring until he turns 21, that he perform 400 hours community service and that he pay $1,147 restitution.

Baldwin attached great importance to making sure Scully does not drink alcohol during the next three years....
