RHINELANDER - Fifteen different vandalism-related charges moved forward against a Monico 17-year-old in court Friday.

Anthony Briggs is accused of working with two other teenagers in this Monico break-in and several others.

Although Briggs is just 17, the accusations against him are a big deal.

"They are now in criminal court. The damage that they did is very serious. It's extensive. We, in prosecuting these cases, will take these charges very seriously," says Oneida County Assistant District Attorney Steve Michlig.

Oneida County Judge Michael Bloom decided there was enough evidence to continue the case.

Seventeen-year-old Jeffrey Stefonik faces similar charges for the crimes.

A 15-year-old is also being charged in juvenile court.

Briggs is free on bond until an April 8th court date.

Stefonik will enter his plea on Monday.
